Insert Tabbed Folder

Note: ZIETrans tabbed folder support is deprecated in ZIETrans V1.0. While support for tabbed folders continues for now, it may be deprecated in the future. Some alternatives are:
  • Create custom DIV sections and JavaScript to control the visibility of the individual DIV sections. Tools and examples are widely available on the Internet.
Use Insert Tabbed Folder to insert a folder with tabs into your Web page. Tabbed folders are helpful in organizing your widgets and information to display on the Web page. With Insert Tabbed Folder, you specify how many tabs you want for your folder. Combining the tabbed folder and the stored screen function enables you to have a folder with a different host screen on each tab. For each tab in the folder, you also specify the following settings:
  • The label text for the tab
  • The host components you want to display on the tab
  • The background color for the tab when it is not selected
  • The background color for the tab when it is selected
Under Tab advanced options, if you clear the Use default values check box, you can specify the following settings:
  • The color of the text on the tab page when the tab is selected
  • The color of the text on the tab page when it is not selected
  • The color of the tab page when you place your cursor over the tab

Under Folder advanced options, if you clear Use default values check box, you can specify the following settings:

The Preview window shows how the tabbed folder will appear, based on the selections you make. This preview does not show the components that have been inserted into the tabbed folder. It only displays changes to the folder such as size and color.

You can click Full page preview to show all the components on the page along with the associated template. This preview shows the page as it will appear to the user.

Click OK when you have defined all of the tabbed folder options for each tab in the folder.

Once you have created a tabbed folder, you can not come back to the Insert Tabbed Folder wizard to make changes. You need to edit the source because the output is in HTML (and ZIETrans component tags).
Note:
  1. Because a tabbed folder is made up of several HTML tags, it is not recommended to try to move the individual sections. If you want to change the location of your tabbed folder, select the cell that surrounds it and move the cell to the location you want.
