This page explains how the Tabs widget can be used to group related content and enable users to switch between different sets of information within a single container.

Using the Tabs Widget

Create multi-step form

Custom navigation schemes can be created by modifying the properties of a Tab widget. For instance, you can use the Default tabs and storeValue to create a multi-step form.

Example: suppose you want to create a multi-step form using Tabs Widget.

  1. Drop a Tab Widget and rename the tabs to Basic Info, and Personal Info.

  2. On the Basic Info tab add a Button widget to allow users to move to the next tab, and set its onClick event to:

{{storeValue('defaulttab', 'Personal Info');}}
  1. Similarly, on the Personal Info tab, add a new button widget that allows users to go back to the previous tab, and set its onClick event to:
{{storeValue('defaulttab', 'Basic Info');}}

You can use the storeValue action for both previous and next buttons, and set the key for the stored value to be the same as the name of the Tabs.

  1. In the Default Tab property of the Tabs widget, add the following code:
