Display Tabs

Content properties

These properties are customizable options present in the property pane of the widget, allowing users to modify the widget according to their preferences.


Tabs string

Allows you to manage tabs within the widget, where each tab is identified by a unique name. You can rearrange the tabs items and configure their visibility by clicking on the gear icon ⚙️.

Default Tab string

Allows you to specify a default tab by its name, which is automatically displayed when the widget loads. Make sure the Tab name is exactly as specified.


Visible boolean

Controls the visibility of the widget. If you turn off this property, the widget would not be visible in View Mode. Additionally, you can use JavaScript by clicking on JS next to the Visible property to conditionally control the widget's visibility. The default value for the property is true.

For example, if you want to make the widget visible only when the user selects "Yes" from a Select widget, you can use the following JavaScript expression:

{{Select1.selectedOptionValue === "Yes"}}

Animate Loading boolean

This property controls whether the widget is displayed with a loading animation. When enabled, the widget shows a skeletal animation during the loading process. Additionally, you can control it through JavaScript by clicking on the JS next to the property. The default value for the property is true.

Show tabs boolean

This option enables you to toggle the visibility of tabs. The default value for the property is true.

Height string

This property determines how the widget's height adjusts to changes in its content. There are three available options:

  • Fixed: Maintains a constant height for the widget, allowing you to adjust it by dragging or using the resize handle.
  • Auto Height: The widget's height adjusts dynamically in response to changes in its content.
  • Auto Height with limits: Same as Auto height, with a configurable option to set the minimum and maximum number of rows the widget can occupy.

Colors, Borders and Shadows

Accent color string

Represents the color of the tab, specified as a CSS color value. Additionally, the color can be programmatically modified using JavaScript functions.

Background Color string

Sets the background color of the widget, specified as a CSS color value. It can also be manipulated programmatically using the JavaScript functions.

Border color string

Sets a color for the border, specified as a CSS color value. It can also be manipulated programmatically using the JavaScript functions.

Border Width number

Specifies the width of the widget's border, accepting only numerical values in pixels (px). The default value is 1.

Border radius string

Applies rounded corners to the outer edge of the widget. If JavaScript is enabled, you can specify valid CSS border-radius to adjust the radius of the corners.

Box Shadow string

This property adds a drop shadow effect to the frame of the widget. If JavaScript is enabled, you can specify valid CSS box-shadow values to customize the appearance of the shadow.

Reference properties

Reference properties are properties that are not available in the property pane but can be accessed using the dot operator in other widgets or JavaScript functions. They provide additional information or allow interaction with the widget programmatically. For instance, to get the visibility status, you can use Tabs2.isVisible.

selectedTab string

Contains the name of the tab currently selected.



isVisible boolean

Reflects whether the widget is visible or not.




Widget property setters enable you to modify the values of widget properties at runtime, eliminating the need to manually update properties in the editor.

These methods are asynchronous and return a Promise. You can use the .then() block to ensure execution and sequencing of subsequent lines of code in Appsmith.

setVisibility (param: boolean): Promise
