The Tabs component acts as a conductor, orchestrating information flow and streamlining user interaction.

It's like having multiple forms within a single interface, allowing you to organize complex tasks and data into logical, bite-sized chunks.

Tabs visually categorize different sections of a form, preventing users from being overwhelmed by a large, monolithic data entry interface.

Each tab acts as a dedicated space for specific information, guiding users through the form step-by-step and preventing them from getting lost in a maze of fields.

Use Case

  1. Enhanced User Experience
  2. Data Management and Efficiency
  3. Organize similar sections under one tab


  1. Show or hide specific tabs based on user choices in other sections of the form. For example, displaying advanced options only after basic information is filled out.
  2. Progressive disclosure
  3. Contextual relevance
  4. Drag-and-drop reordering
  5. Trigger actions like calculations, validations, or data submission upon clicking on specific tabs
  6. Tab highlighting based on data
  7. Tab-specific validation rules
  8. Dynamic content within tabs



Name Description
onChange (element) The onChange event occurs when the value of a field is changed
onFocus (element) The onfocus event occurs when a field gets focus
onBlur (element) The onblur event occurs when a field loses focus

  1. The show() and hide() methods can also be used to control the visibility of tabs in response to user input.
  2. Fields refers to a component ID or a list of component IDs. You can fetch the ID from the Component Attribute panel in the Page Builder.
  3. Before using, make sure the component is hidden. This can be done using this.hide(fields) or by enabling the Hidden checkbox in the Component Attribute panel.
