There is TTabControl. But it has identical tabs.
It just does not have the "page" that switches.

TNoteBook => pages, but no tabs on top


package LazControls  (components/lazcontrols) has TExtendedNotebook => like TTabControl, but tabs can be moved via drag and drop.


Looking for a tab with close-button on Windows => I do not know.

Maybe ATTabs => Online Package Manager

There was a discussion about it not long ago. The conclusion was Lazarus does not provide such a big installer because of shortage of manpower but that is possible if someone wants to volunteer to maintain it.

Luckily Lazarus has Online Package Manager. It can l help you searching and installing third party components that are available for Lazarus. It will show you some short information about the package if your mouse is hovering on the item in the list.

Lazarus main menu > Package > Online Package Manager

Currently, 185 repository packages are available. If you found any good open source component that can be installed into Lazarus but can't be found on OPM, you can report it. The maintainer will add it to the list.

is there any alternative to TPagecontrol?

TNotebook, TPageControl, TTabControl, THeaderControl, TExtendedNotebook. They are similar but have different feature set.

Using OPM, I found these:
- ATTabs (in ATFlatControls)
- jvpagecomp (in Jvcllaz)
- TabControls (in pl Cindy)

Hi!

A component palette with "All components" is for the mouse klickers.

A minimum component palette is for those who read.

It is better to learn Lazarus by reading.
That gives more answers and and a deeper insight.

And what is "All"??
There are Linux-only, Windows-only, Mac-only components.
There are outdated components.
There are very special and seldom used components like the medical image format for X-rays.
And, and, and ...

Just for this discussion you need an own forum.
