SideView Utils Tabs Module-Different Panel Layout per Tab?

I"m using the Sideview Utils Tab Module, but I am unsure how to have different Panel Layouts per tab.


For example:
Tab1: I would like one row and two columns

Tab2: I would like one row and one column


Is there a way to do this? In my view on my second tab, I get one empty panel, and one panel with my data..

It's not possible without writing a CustomBehavior.

The core problem is that the dashboard template sets the widths and heights of the panels, whereas its the modules framework that controls module visibility. And these two systems were never made to talk to eachother.

I am thinking of adding some facility in Sideview Utils that can basically hide panels in the dashboard template when the last module therein is hidden, and that can resize the remaining panels in the row accordingly. It is a frequent problem you're running into certainly. I'm afraid I just haven't gotten around to it.

In the meantime all I have is a pencil sketch of the sort of customBehavior you'd need, over on this answer here: http://answers.splunk.com/answers/98658/is-there-a-way-to-control-layoutpanel-in-tabsswitcher
