Is it possible to do tabset drawing upside down, so that tabset control could be placed on a top.

It needs to be done with tabset or similar control. Not with the tabbednotebook.

And other controls that could make this happen in delphi 1.0

It is possible, but it might be a bit difficult.

You would have to draw the TabSet yourself.

To do this, set the Tabset.style property to tsOwnerDraw.

Then write your code in the OnDrawTab event.
The OnDrawTab event includes a TRect object in its list of parameters.  You can use it to get the client area that needs to be drawn.

It would be FAR easier to just go ahead and use the TabbedNotebook component - If that is an option.

Please reject my answer.  I made a mistake. The OnDrawTab event will only give you the Rect for the actual text.  NOT  the whole TabSet.
