Tab Control

  • updated 3 yrs ago


The tab control allows for the repetition of a set of observation questions where the user can add and switch between each set using tabs.


It is best to use tab control to present and edit larger datasets efficiently on screen. The system presents each set of answers on a tab and the user can switch between tabs, add new tabs, and remove/delete existing tabs in creating the observation data set. For example, an application that asks the same set of questions about office locations where the number of locations can vary (e.g. London, Paris, New York) can use tab control so the user creates the named tabs and provides inputs for each location.
