Navigation and Layout - Tab Strip Overview

About the Tab Strip

The DevExpress ASP.NET MVC Tab-Page Strip is an effective solution for creating tabbed interfaces that allow end-users to navigate through different pages.

To add tabs to your web application, define the TabControl extension within the View and add the required tabs within the settings.

View code:

@Html.DevExpress().TabControl(settings => {
    settings.Name = "tcOverview";

Key Features
  • Binding to Data
    You can bind a TabControl to a data source so that your tabs are retrieved from an XML file or a hierarchical list.
  • Loading Content via AJAX
    PageControl can load the content of popup windows on demand.
  • Tab Scrolling
    If the Tab Strip size does not allow all tabs to be visible within the tab header at one time, scroll buttons are displayed, allowing end-users to scroll tabs.
  • Templates
    Templates are fully supported. For each element within TabControl, you can customize the appearance or layout using any HTML content.
  • Rich Client-Side Functionality
    A comprehensive client-side API is available for TabControl. This functionality, which is then coupled with the ability to handle events on the client side, gives you full control over the TabControl behavior on the client side.
