Have I got tabs for you!Thursday, May 17th, 2007 at 12:15 pm
One of the guys I keep dragging into the limelight of the web (the last time with an A List Apart article on font resize monitoring) is my colleague Lawrence Carvalho. This time he has an amazingly versatile tab interface based on the YUI on offer.
There are many tabs solutions out there, including my DOMtab but Lawrence’s beat mine hands-down:
- Based on design patterns described in the YUI Design Pattern library (Drop invitation, Spotlight, Fadeout)
- URL Fragment aware (ah I have that, too) – highlights targeted patterns in the URL
- Uses Event Delegation
- Allows for deletion of tabs and re-ordering of tabs – including dragging a tab from one tab group to another!
Check out the example page to see the different implemenations.
