#8021 new Feature request

Ability to rename tabs

When we have multiple tabs open for an FTP site all the tabs have the same name. User has to click on each tab to look for the folder that he needs. It would be great if we could right click on a tab and rename it as we like

void CContextControl::OnTabContextRename(wxCommandEvent& event)

CInputDialog dlg;
if (!dlg.Create(this, _("Rename Tab"), _("Please enter new name for the tab:")))


if (dlg.ShowModal() != wxID_OK)


for (size_t j = 0; j < m_context_controls.size(); j++) {

if (m_context_controls[j].tab_index != m_right_clicked_tab)



CContextControl::_context_controls* controls = GetControlsFromState(m_context_controls[j].pState);
m_tabs->SetPageText(controls->tab_index, controls->pState->GetTitle());




This is part of the patch.

What's the status on this?

Can't seem to find an option for this. It would be so convenient to have this, as I often have 3-4 tabs open for the same site, which display all with the same tab name.
