This class allows users to create a GUI using GUIDE that supports a tabbed UI.
Since GUIDE doesn't directly support the uitabgroup control, this class allows tabs to be created as standard panels that are at run time converted to uitab controls.
1. Create a pane with tag set to Tab? where ? is any letter or number (e.g. TabA). This main pane should be left empty and determines the size and location of the tab group (uitabgroup)
2. Create additional panes with a tag name that starts with the name of the main pane. All other controls should be added to these panes.
3. In the Guide generated function xxx_OpeningFcn add the following:
handles.tabManager = TabManager( hObject );
