To use this tag, the head tag must be included on the page, which can be configured for performance or debugging purposes.

Additional Examples

For more examples see Ajax and JavaScript Recipes

Description

The tabbedpanel widget is primarily an AJAX component, where each tab can either be local content or remote content (refreshed each time the user selects that tab).

If the useSelectedTabCookie attribute is set to true, the id of the selected tab is saved in a cookie on activation. When coming back to this view, the cookie is read and the tab will be activated again, unless an actual value for the selectedTab attribute is specified.

If you want to use the cookie feature, please be sure that you provide a unique id for your tabbedpanel component, since this will also be the identifying name component of the stored cookie.
