Tab Overview

What does the component do?

It is used to structure the display of data and forms.

When should the component be used?

  • When switching between different aspects within the same context.
  • When the content of various aspects cannot be seen at the same time by the user.

Rules

  • There are at least two tabs.
  • The first tab is always selected by default.
  • The tab names are always single-line.
  • The tab name should be as simple and concise as possible so that the themes can be quickly understood.
  • If the tab is too long for the viewport, the other tabs can be reached with a horizontal scrollbar (desktop) or by swiping (tablet/mobile).
  • Another tab module is not permitted within a tab (tab-in-tab).
