The ASP.NET Tabs control is 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 preselected 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 when there are more tabs, and more.
The ASP.NET 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 configure the Remove button for each tab or specific tabs to remove it dynamically.
Users can set the tab header prefix image/icon for each tab panel header.
It’s easy to integrate other ASP.NET controls as content of the tab’s pane. It can also be integrated with other controls such as Dialog and Card.
Users can dynamically load the content to the tab pane on activating it. They can also load the content from external pages using the AJAX library.
Users can adjust a tab’s height automatically according to its content, parent container, or the height of the highest tab panel.
The ASP.NET Tabs control has several built-in themes such as material, bootstrap, fabric (Office 365), and high contrast. They help to design material tabs, bootstrap tabs, etc. The users can customize any one of these built-in themes or create new themes to achieve their own desired look and feel using our Theme Studio application.
