Introduction

The tabs structure consists of an unordered list of tabs that have hashes corresponding to tab ids. Then when you click on each tab, only the container with the corresponding tab id will become visible. You can add the class .disabled to make a tab inaccessible.

Tabs HTML Structure


  <div class="row">
    <div class="col xs12">
      <ul class="tabs">
        <li class="tab col xs3"><a href="#test1">Test 1</a></li>
        <li class="tab col xs3"><a class="active" href="#test2">Test 2</a></li>
        <li class="tab col xs3 disabled"><a href="#test3">Disabled Tab</a></li>
        <li class="tab col xs3"><a href="#test4">Test 4</a></li>
      </ul>
    </div>
    <div id="test1" class="col xs12">Test 1</div>
    <div id="test2" class="col xs12">Test 2</div>
    <div id="test3" class="col xs12">Test 3</div>
    <div id="test4" class="col xs12">Test 4</div>
  </div>
        

jQuery Plugin Initialization

Tabs are initialized automatically, but if you add tabs dynamically you will have to initialize them like this.


  $(document).ready(function(){
    $('ul.tabs').tabs();
  });
        

jQuery Plugin Methods

You can programmatically trigger a tab change with our select_tab method. You have to input the id of the tab you want to switch to. In the case of our demo it would be either test1, test2, test3, or test4.


  $(document).ready(function(){
    $('ul.tabs').tabs('select_tab', 'tab_id');
  });
        

Preselecting a tab

By default, the first tab is selected. But if this is not what you want, you can preselect a tab by either passing in the hash in the url ex:#test2. Or you can add the class active to the a tag.


  <li class="tab col xs2"><a class="active" href="#test3">Test 3</a></li>
