Sorry for the delayed response, but I've been on vacation.

Technically, you can always "get to" these widgets by navigating  
through the widget hierarchy using methods like FXWindow#each_child,  
but that can be a little tricky. Why don't you just store them in  
arrays or hashes, e.g.

	customs_summary_year_tabs = []
	customs_summary_tables = []
	years_on_file.each do |year|
		customs_summary_year_tabs << FXTabItem.new(...)
		customs_summary_year_tables << FXTable.new(...)

Hope this helps,
