Editing Tabs

Once a tab is created, it can easily be edited.  Now when the developer goes to the Tabs in the Shared Components, they will be presented with a graphical interface, shown in Figure 11.33, to create more tabs and tab sets.

Figure 11.33 has two Add links.  The one on the long dark bar next to Reports is used to add more tabs to the Easy Tab tab set.  When clicked, it will start the wizard at Step four outlined above.  The Add on the upper right is to add new parent tab sets.  The Documents and Images tabs have been added to the Reports tab set below.

Adding Tabs to a Page

After a tab set is created, it has to be added to the page.  The tab set can be added to the page during the page creation.  One step of the page creation will ask if the developer wishes to use tabs and if so which tab to use on the page.

To add the tab set to an existing page, the developer must enter the Edit Attributes for the page.  Once in Edit Attributes, scroll down to the Display Attributes section.

In the Display Attributes section, use the Standard Tab Set drop down list to specify which tab set to use.  Also, a Page template that supports tabs must be selected; otherwise, the tabs will not appear.  After the selections have been made, click on Apply Changes.

When running the form now, the tab set will be displayed.  When the user clicks on the tabs, they will navigate to the specified pages.

Parent Tabs

As noted before, parent tabs are containers for standard tabs.  The parents tab will contain entries which, when selected, will show a standard tab.  For example, one might create a Parent Tab called Library.  The Library tab set will contain two tabs called Files and Data, respectively.  When clicked, the Files tab will navigate to the Easy Tab that has already been created.  The Data tab will navigate to another tab set that has been created.
