$("#tabs").dxTabs({
});

You can create the widget using one of the following approaches.

  • jQuery
    Use the dxTabs jQuery plug-in.

    HTML
    <div id="tabs"></div>
    JavaScript
    var tabItems = [
        { text: "Home", icon: "home" },
        { text: "About", icon: "info" }
    ]
    $("#tabs").dxTabs({
        dataSource: tabItems
    });
  • Knockout
    Add a div element and apply the dxTabs binding to this element.

    HTML
    <div data-bind="dxTabs: {
        dataSource: tabItems
    }"></div>
  • AngularJS
    Add a div element and apply the dx-tabs directive to this element.

    HTML
    <div dx-tabs="{
        dataSource: tabItems
    }"></div>

Note that DevExtreme widgets require you to link the jQuery library to your application. If you use the Knockout or AngularJS approach, the Knockout or AngularJS library is also required. For detailed information on linking these libraries to your project, refer to the Installation article.

Since the Tabs widget is used to display multiple items, it supports common the Collection Container widget functionality. You can find detailed information on the principles of working with the widget in the dxTabs section of the Collection Container Widgets article.
