This article covers usage of JHtmlTabs in your Joomla! component for Joomla! versions Joomla 1.6 through Joomla 2.5 and greater. If you are using Joomla! Joomla 1.5, see How_to_use_the_JPane_classes_in_a_component.

Options for JHtmlTabs

onActive: A callback function when a tab is activated with two params. 'title' is the tab itself, and 'description' is the tab content.

onBackground: A callback function when a tab is backgrounded

startOffset: The default tab to start with (zero based index).

useCookie: Whether or not to use cookies to store tab active state. (boolean) (true | false) // This is not a string. Don't use quotes.

Example

$options = array(
    'onActive' => 'function(title, description){
        description.setStyle("display", "block");
        title.addClass("open").removeClass("closed");
    }',
    'onBackground' => 'function(title, description){
        description.setStyle("display", "none");
        title.addClass("closed").removeClass("open");
    }',
    'startOffset' => 0,  // 0 starts on the first tab, 1 starts the second, etc...
    'useCookie' => true, // this must not be a string. Don't use quotes.
);
 
echo JHtml::_('tabs.start', 'tab_group_id', $options);
 
echo JHtml::_('tabs.panel', JText::_('PANEL_1_TITLE'), 'panel_1_id');
echo 'Panel 1 content can go here.';
 
echo JHtml::_('tabs.panel', JText::_('PANEL_2_TITLE'), 'panel_2_id');
echo 'Panel 2 content can go here.';
 
echo JHtml::_('tabs.end');
