JET Custom Elements

JET components are implemented as custom HTML elements. In addition to the component attributes documented in this page, JET components also support standard HTML global attributes like id and aria-label.

The JET data binding syntax can be used to define both component and global attributes through the use of dynamically evaluated expressions. All attributes (component and global) support attribute-level binding by prefixing the attribute name with ":" (e.g. :id="[...]"). When using attribute-level binding, all expression values are treated as strings. Additionally, component attributes support property-level binding by using the attribute name directly with no ":" prefix. When using property-level binding, the expressions should evaluate to the types documented by the corresponding attributes. Property-level binding is strongly recommended over attribute-level binding for component attributes.

A detailed description of working with custom HTML elements can be found in: JET Custom Element Usage.

Description: JET Tab Bar enhances a HTML list element into a themable, WAI-ARIA compliant, mobile friendly component with advance interactive features.

Data

The JET Tab Bar gets its data in two different ways. The first way is from a DataProvider/TableDataSource. There are several types of DataProvider/TableDataSource that are available out of the box:

  • oj.ArrayDataProvider
  • oj.CollectionTableDataSource

oj.ArrayDataProvider - Use this when the underlying data is an array object or an observableArray. In the observableArray case, Tab Bar will automatically react when items are added or removed from the array. See the documentation for oj.ArrayDataProvider for more details on the available options.

oj.CollectionTableDataSource - Use this when oj.Collection is the model for the underlying data. Note that the Tab Bar will automatically react to model event from the underlying oj.Collection. See the documentation for oj.CollectionTableDataSource for more details on the available options.

NOTE: oj.PagingTableDataSource is not supported by Tab Bar.

Second way is using static HTML content as data.

Example of static content


<oj-tab-bar>
 <ul>
  <li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Item 3</a></li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>

Any list item can be disabled by adding the oj-disabled class to that element. As with any DOM change, doing so post-init requires a refresh() of the element.

Key

Key is an identifier which uniquely identifies an item in tabbar.

  • When static html is used, it will be the id attribute of <li>. If no id is specified then component will generate an id and will use it as key.
  • When data source is used, it will be the id attribute of item's data object.

Icons

Sublist icons are inserted automatically. To add other icons to list items, include them in the markup and include the oj-tabbar-item-icon class, as follows:

<oj-tab-bar>
  <ul>
    <li id="foo"><a href="#"><span class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24"></span>Foo</a></li>
  </ul>
 </oj-tab-bar>

Styling

The following CSS classes can be applied by the page author as needed.

Class Description Example
oj-tabbar-stack-icon-label Displays horizontal Tab Bar with icon and label stacked. Applicable only when edge is top.
<oj-tab-bar class="oj-tabbar-stack-icon-label" >
 <ul>
   <li id="foo">
     <a href="#">
       <span class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24">
       </span>
       Foo
     </a>
   </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-tabbar-category-divider Use this class to add horizontal divider line between two categories of items.
<oj-tab-bar>
 <ul>
   <li ...> </li>
   <li class="oj-tabbar-category-divider"> </li>
   <li id="foo">
     <a href="#">
       <span class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24">
       </span>
       Foo
     </a>
   </li>
   <li ...> </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-tabbar-item-icon Use this class to add icon to list item.
<oj-tab-bar>
 <ul>
   <li id="foo">
     <a href="#">
       <span class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24">
       </span>
       Foo
     </a>
   </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-tabbar-item-title When arbitrary content is placed inside item's content area, it's title text can be marked using this style class. This helps component in identifying the Item's label.
<li>
  <div>
    <span class="oj-tabbar-item-title">Play</span>
    <button>Button</button>
  </div>
</li>
oj-tabbar-item-text-wrap Use this class to wrap item label text. Note: On IE11, this is not supported when overflow attribute is set to popup.
<oj-tab-bar class="oj-tabbar-item-text-wrap" >
 <ul>
   <li id="foo">
     <a href="#">
       <span class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24">
       </span>
       Foo
     </a>
   </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-tabbar-item-dividers Use this class to show dividers between horizontal tab bar items.
<oj-tab-bar class="oj-tabbar-item-dividers" >
 <ul>
   <li id="foo">
      <a href="#">
        <span class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24"></span>

oj-xl-condense Use this class to condense horizontal tab bar items on extra large screens and larger.
oj-tabbar-nofollow-link Use this class to prevent automatic navigation to the url specified on <a> tag's href attribute. In this case, navigation can be handled programmatically by using selectionChanged event. This is useful to execute some custom tasks before browser triggers navigation.
<oj-tab-bar class="oj-tabbar-nofollow-link" >
 <ul>
   <li id="foo"><a href="folder/foo.html">
     <span
       class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24"></span>
     Foo</a>
   </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-removable Use this class to make an item removable.
<oj-tab-bar >
 <ul>
   <li id="foo" class="oj-removable" ><a href="folder/foo.html">
     <span
       class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24"></span>
     Foo</a>
   </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-tabbar-hide-remove-icon Use this class to hide the remove icon. In this case, Item can be removed using context menu.
<oj-tab-bar class="oj-tabbar-hide-remove-icon">
 <ul>
   <li id="foo" class="oj-removable" ><a href="folder/foo.html">
     <span
       class="oj-tabbar-item-icon demo-icon-font-24 demo-palette-icon-24"></span>
     Foo</a>
   </li>
 </ul>
</oj-tab-bar>
oj-focus-highlight Under normal circumstances this class is applied automatically. It is documented here for the rare cases that an app developer needs per-instance control.

The oj-focus-highlight class applies focus styling that may not be desirable when the focus results from pointer interaction (touch or mouse), but which is needed for accessibility when the focus occurs by a non-pointer mechanism, for example keyboard or initial page load.

The application-level behavior for this component is controlled in the theme by the $focusHighlightPolicy SASS variable; however, note that this same variable controls the focus highlight policy of many components and patterns. The values for the variable are:

  • nonPointer: oj-focus-highlight is applied only when focus is not the result of pointer interaction. Most themes default to this value.
  • all: oj-focus-highlight is applied regardless of the focus mechanism.
  • none: oj-focus-highlight is never applied. This behavior is not accessible, and is intended for use when the application wishes to use its own event listener to precisely control when the class is applied (see below). The application must ensure the accessibility of the result.

To change the behavior on a per-instance basis, the application can set the SASS variable as desired and then use event listeners to toggle this class as needed.

Item Context

For all item options, developers can specify a function as the return value. The function takes a single argument, which is an object that contains contextual information about the particular item. This gives developers the flexibility to return different value depending on the context.

The context paramter contains the following keys:

Key Description
componentElement oj-tab-bar element.
datasource A reference to the data source object. (Not available for static content)
index The index of the item, where 0 is the index of the first item.
key The Key of the item.
data The data object for the item.
parentElement The list item element. The renderer can use this to directly append content.

Performance

Data Set Size

As a rule of thumb, it's recommended that applications limit the amount of data to display. Displaying large number of items in Tab Bar makes it hard for user to find what they are looking for, but affects the load time.

Item Content

Tab Bar allows developers to specify arbitrary content inside its item. In order to minimize any negative effect on performance, you should avoid putting a large number of heavy-weight components inside because as you add more complexity to the structure, the effect will be multiplied because there can be many items in the Tab Bar.

Accessibility

See also the oj-focus-highlight discussion.

Disabled content: JET supports an accessible luminosity contrast ratio, as specified in WCAG 2.0 - Section 1.4.3 "Contrast", in the themes that are accessible. (See the "Theming" chapter of the JET Developer Guide for more information on which themes are accessible.) Note that Section 1.4.3 says that text or images of text that are part of an inactive user interface component have no contrast requirement. Because disabled content may not meet the minimum contrast ratio required of enabled content, it cannot be used to convey meaningful information.

Reading direction

The only supported way to set the reading direction (LTR or RTL) is to set the "dir" attribute on the <html> element of the page. As with any JET custom element, in the unusual case that the reading direction is changed post-init, the tab bar must be refresh()ed, or the page must be reloaded.

Animation

Applications can customize animations triggered by actions in Tab Bar by either listening for animateStart/animateEnd events or overriding action specific style classes on the animated item. See the documentation of oj.AnimationUtils class for details.

The following are actions and their corresponding sass variables in which applications can use to customize animation effects.

Action Sass Variable Description
add $tabBarHorizontalAddAnimation When a new item is added to the oj.TableDataSource associated with Horizontal Tab Bar.
$tabBarAddAnimation When a new item is added to the oj.TableDataSource associated with Vertical Tab Bar.
remove $tabBarHorizontalRemoveAnimation When an existing item is removed from the oj.TableDataSource associated with Horizontal Tab Bar.
$tabBarRemoveAnimation When an existing item is removed from the oj.TableDataSource associated with Vertical Tab Bar.
update $tabBarUpdateAnimation When an existing item is updated in the oj.TableDataSource associated with TabBar.
pointerUp $tabBarPointerUpAnimation When user finish pressing an item (on touch).

Note: Application logic should not interact with the component's properties or invoke its methods until the BusyContext indicates that the component is ready for interaction.

Slots

JET components that allow child content support slots. Please see the slots section of the JET component overview doc for more information on allowed slot content and slot types.

contextMenu

The contextMenu slot is set on the oj-menu within this element. This is used to designate the JET Menu that this component should launch as a context menu on right-click, Shift-F10, Press & Hold, or component-specific gesture. If specified, the browser's native context menu will be replaced by the JET Menu specified in this slot.

The application can register a listener for the Menu's ojBeforeOpen event. The listener can cancel the launch via event.preventDefault(), or it can customize the menu contents by editing the menu DOM directly, and then calling refresh() on the Menu.

To help determine whether it's appropriate to cancel the launch or customize the menu, the ojBeforeOpen listener can use component API's to determine which table cell, chart item, etc., is the target of the context menu. See the JSDoc of the individual components for details.

Keep in mind that any such logic must work whether the context menu was launched via right-click, Shift-F10, Press & Hold, or component-specific touch gesture.

itemTemplate

PREVIEW: This is a preview API. Preview APIs are production quality, but can be changed on a major version without a deprecation path.

The itemTemplate slot is used to specify the template for rendering each item in the list. The slot must be a <template> element. The content of the template could either include the <li> element, in which case that will be used as the root of the item. Or it can be just the content which excludes the <li> element.

When the template is executed for each item, it will have access to the binding context containing the following properties:

  • $current - an object that contains information for the current item. (See the table below for a list of properties available on $current)
  • alias - if as attribute was specified, the value will be used to provide an application-named alias for $current.
Properties of $current:
Name Type Description
componentElement Element The <oj-navigation-list> custom element
data Object The data for the current item being rendered
index number The zero-based index of the curent item
key any The key of the current item being rendered

Attributes

as :string

PREVIEW: This is a preview API. Preview APIs are production quality, but can be changed on a major version without a deprecation path.
