The sample JSPTabContainer channel, by default, includes:
Banner links to return Home, tabs to allow the user to remove, rename or select the start tab, and also create a new tab (the URL for this page is action=edit&provider=JSPTabContainer), theme to allow the user to set the color scheme and font type for the Desktop (the URL for the preset theme page is action=edit&provider=JSPPresetThemeContainer), help that displays the Desktop sample online help (the URL is ../docs/locale/desktop/helppage.htm), Log Out link to log the user out of the Desktop (the URL is action=logout), and Search to allow the user to search.
When you click Make a New Tab, the corresponding Edit page is shown. You decide what to name the tab and what the tab topics are. Content Page is displayed only when making a new tab from scratch. When other Tab Topics are selected, a new tab which looks similar to the TabTopic selected, is created and displayed.
Links specific to the contained containers. The channels in each tab depend on the contained container of the JSPTabContainer. In the Sample Portal, these contained containers are JSPTableContainer and the channels are dependant on this container; but this does not have to be the case, they can be any container. The Content and Layout links provide the ability to customize the current selected contained container.
Content and layout links. The top-most JSP in the table container defines the Content and Layout links. JSPContentContainer is the container that displays the Content page, and JSPLayoutContainer is the container that displays the Layout page.
