A set of Tabs is a type of form in WorkXpress. The purpose of tabs is to contain and organize forms into tabs, only one of whose content is displayed at a time. Tab options can be generated either by a list of static options or by a query of records in the database. Also, there are six options for interface style: standard tabs, ribbon options, left-hand tabs, drop-down selection options, type-to-select options, and slideshow.

How to Create

Tabs are created in one of two ways: either clicking the “Forms” button in the left hand palette and then dragging the Classic Forms button over the page's background, or, when the presentation layer is displayed, clicking on one of the blue plus icons ().


Tab features can be edited by clicking on the blue tab icon (either , , or , depending on interface choice) when the presentation layer is displayed.
