The JavaScript Tab, or HTML5 Tab control is a simple user interface (tabs UI) for organizing related content and occupying a compact space. The tabs are aligned horizontally, and each tab is associated with its header. One of the tabs must always be selected and visible. The Tabs control has a rich set of features such as animation, orientation, templating, header styles, a close button for each tab, a scrollbar or pop-up when there are many tabs, JSON support, and more.

Scrollable tabs

The JavaScript Tabs control manages additional tabs efficiently using scrollable tabs when there are a greater number of tabs than can be shown. This simplifies the design and aligns the tabs in a single line. Users can swipe left or right over the tab header area to scroll and make clearly visible the out-of-sight tabs in mobile.

Pop-up mode

The pop-up mode is another type of overflow mode in which a pop-up holds the additional tabs when there are a greater number of tabs than can be shown. You can view the out-of-sight tabs by exploring the pop-up mode.

Nested tabs

Users can nest one tab within another tab to design a complex layout.

Drag and drop

The JavaScript Tabs control allows users to drag and drop tabs to easily re-prioritize the tab item order. Also, it allows adding tabs dynamically from an external source such as a ListView, TreeView, etc.

JavaScript Draggable Tabs

Tabs headers (label)

The tab bar has a good visual representation for segregating active tabs and inactive tabs. It has an enormous interaction area for navigation in mobile tab view. The tab headers can be icons, plain text, or both. The position of the icons can also be changed to the left, right, top, and bottom inside tab headers.

Headers placement

A row of tabs can be aligned horizontally on the top or bottom of tab content to make a top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top hierarchy in a tab bar.

Header styles

The JavaScript Tabs control provides various built-in styles to customize the headers easily.

Remove button on tabs

Users can configure the Remove button for each tab or specific tabs to remove it dynamically.


Navigate among tabs with nice, built-in animation effects (for example: slide animation) when you click or tap a tab. The tab navigation happens on swiping within the content or tapping a tab header in a mobile tab view.

Adjustable height

Users can adjust a tab’s height automatically according to its content, parent container, or the height of the highest tab panel.

Easy integration

It’s easy to integrate other JavaScript controls as content of the tab’s pane. The JavaScript Tabs control can also be integrated with other controls such as Dialog and Card.
