Class TabPanel

A widget which combines a TabBar and a StackedPanel. The namespace for the TabPanel class statics.

Notes

This is a simple panel which handles the common case of a tab bar placed next to a content area. The selected tab controls the widget which is shown in the content area.

For use cases which require more control than is provided by this panel, the TabBar widget may be used independently.

node

node: HTMLElement

Get the DOM node owned by the widget.

stackedPanel

stackedPanel: StackedPanel

The stacked panel used by the tab panel.

Modifying the panel directly can lead to undefined behavior.

tabBar

tabBar: TabBar<Widget>

Accessors

currentChanged

  • A signal emitted when the current tab is changed.

    Notes

    This signal is emitted when the currently selected tab is changed either through user or programmatic interaction.

    Notably, this signal is not emitted when the index of the current tab changes due to tabs being inserted, removed, or moved. It is only emitted when the actual current tab node is changed.

    Returns ISignal<this, ICurrentChangedArgs>

currentIndex

  • get currentIndex(): number
  • set currentIndex(value: number): void
  • Get the index of the currently selected tab.

    Notes

    This will be -1 if no tab is selected.

    Returns number

  • Set the index of the currently selected tab.

    Notes

    If the index is out of range, it will be set to -1.

    Parameters

    • value: number

    Returns void

currentWidget

  • get currentWidget(): Widget | null
  • set currentWidget(value: Widget | null): void
  • Get the currently selected widget.

    Notes

    This will be null if there is no selected tab.

    Returns Widget | null

  • Set the currently selected widget.

    Notes

    If the widget is not in the panel, it will be set to null.

    Parameters

    Returns void

dataset

  • get dataset(): DOMStringMap

disposed

  • get disposed(): ISignal<this, void>
  • A signal emitted when the widget is disposed.

    Returns ISignal<this, void>

id

  • get id(): string
  • set id(value: string): void
  • Get the id of the widget's DOM node.

    Returns string

  • Set the id of the widget's DOM node.

    Parameters

    • value: string

    Returns void

isAttached

  • get isAttached(): boolean

isDisposed

  • get isDisposed(): boolean

isHidden

  • get isHidden(): boolean

isVisible

  • get isVisible(): boolean
  • Test whether the widget is visible.

    Notes

    A widget is visible when it is attached to the DOM, is not explicitly hidden, and has no explicitly hidden ancestors.

    Returns boolean

layout

  • get layout(): Layout | null
  • set layout(value: Layout | null): void
  • Get the layout for the widget.

    Notes

    The layout is single-use only. It cannot be changed after the first assignment.

    The layout is disposed automatically when the widget is disposed.

    Returns Layout | null

  • Set the layout for the widget.

    Notes

    The layout is single-use only. It cannot be changed after the first assignment.

    The layout is disposed automatically when the widget is disposed.

    Parameters

    Returns void

parent

  • get parent(): Widget | null
  • set parent(value: Widget | null): void
  • Get the parent of the widget.

    Notes

    Children are typically added to a widget by using a layout, which means user code will not normally set the parent widget directly.

    The widget will be automatically removed from its old parent.

    This is a no-op if there is no effective parent change.

    Returns Widget | null

  • Set the parent of the widget.

    Notes

    Children are typically added to a widget by using a layout, which means user code will not normally set the parent widget directly.

    The widget will be automatically removed from its old parent.

    This is a no-op if there is no effective parent change.

    Parameters

    Returns void

tabPlacement

  • Get the tab placement for the tab panel.

    Notes

    This controls the position of the tab bar relative to the content.

    Returns TabPlacement

  • Set the tab placement for the tab panel.

    Notes

    This controls the position of the tab bar relative to the content.

    Parameters

    Returns void

tabsMovable

  • get tabsMovable(): boolean
  • set tabsMovable(value: boolean): void
  • Get the whether the tabs are movable by the user.

    Notes

    Tabs can always be moved programmatically.

    Parameters

    • value: boolean

    Returns void

title

  • The title object for the widget.

    Notes

    The title object is used by some container widgets when displaying the widget alongside some title, such as a tab panel or side bar.

    Since not all widgets will use the title, it is created on demand.

    The owner property of the title is set to this widget.

    Returns Title<Widget>

widgets

  • get widgets(): ReadonlyArray<Widget>
  • A read-only array of the widgets in the panel.

    Returns ReadonlyArray<Widget>
