1 action, 2 targets ??? - Mac Programming

Can an action have two targets? I have a select box which, when I select an item in it, it displays the appropriate tab view pane in an NSTabView. My problem is I've added another NSTabView and I'd like for the same control to select the appropriate pane in that window also. So, one control to display to NSTabViews. Any help much appreciated....

    A control can only have one target. Make its target your controller, and
    then implement the action method to do whatever it needs to do, such as
    telling your two tab views to display the tab you want.

    I'll just mention that this kind of thing is very easy to do with
    bindings, if you're targeting Panther and later versions of OS X.

    ....and to mention one other way to ease doing this, don't forget
    notifications as a tool to make multiple things happen in response to a
    single event.

    Yeah, bindings are cool. Someday when I can say "requires Mac OS X 10.3
    or higher", I might even learn how to use them.
