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 Using 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');
