Overview

The React Tabs component 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 component 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 React Tabs component 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 React 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.

Tabs headers (label)

The React Tabs or 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 React Tabs component 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.


Animation

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.

Dynamic tabs content

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.

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 React components as content of the tab’s pane. The React Tabs component can also be integrated with other components such as Dialog and Card.


Wizard-like application

The easy-to-use React Tabs component design forms wizard-like applications that are used to perform multi step processes.


Themes

The React Tabs component has several built-in themes such as Material, Bootstrap, Fabric (Office 365), Tailwind CSS, 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, either by simply overriding SASS variables or using our Theme Studio application.
