The Tabs and Accordion Components support linking directly to a panel within the component.
To do this:
Navigating to the URL with the panel ID as anchor, the browser will scroll directly to the particular component and display the specified panel. If the panel is configured to not be expanded by default, it will be expanded automatically.
The edit dialog allows the content author to create, rename, and rearrange tabs as well as define the active tab.
Use the Add button to open the component selector to choose which component to add as a tab. Once added, an entry is added to the list, which contains the following columns:
If the viewport of the page is reduced so that the edit dialog becomes full screen, the Add button will be hidden. Components can still be added to the Tabs Component by dragging from the components browser and dropping on the Tabs Component in the page editor.
On the Accessibility tab, values can be set for ARIA accessibility labels for the component.
The content author can use the Select Panel option on the component toolbar to change to a different panel for editing as well as to easily rearrange the order of the tabs.
Once selecting the Select Panel option in the component toolbar, the configured tabs are displayed as a drop-down.
The design dialog allows the template author to define which components can be added as items to the tabs component as well as define which custom styles are available to the content author.
The Allowed Components tab is used to define which components can be added as items to the tabs component by the content author.
The Allowed Components tab functions in the same way as the tab of the same name when defining the policy and properties of a Layout Container in the Template Editor.
The Tabs Component supports the AEM Style System.
The Tabs Component supports the Adobe Client Data Layer.
