Adding Tabs to a Tabular Page

Tabs can be horizontal or vertical. For example, the Valid Intersections card (under the Application cluster) is a tabular page with two horizontal tabs at the top of the page: Setup and Reports.

You can also create tabular pages with vertical tabs. Vertical tabs display a graphic and text appears when the cursor is hovered over the tab. Horizontal tabs display text labels only.

Note:

  • For cards with multiple tabs or sub tabs, the last tab accessed by a user will be retained the next time the user accesses the card in the same session. If the user logs out and then logs back in, the default tab will be displayed.

  • Tabs or sub tabs that are added from another navigation flow or from another subscription will display the localized labels that were defined in the source navigation flow. To update the tab labels in your navigation flow, on the Home page, click Tools, and then click Artifact Labels. See "Specifying Artifact Labels" in your Administering guide.
