Has anyone had any dealings with win32 tabcontrols?

I understand that I can click the tab items with the following

Object().click(atText("Test List1"));

What I wish to know is, can I actually control the underlying class ControlType.TabItem

I wish to verify that the the tab exists has correct name and is visible on screen?

Are there any widgets that can achieve this?
