Control the Behavior

An end user can switch the views by swiping them or selecting tabs. Note that tab navigation is always enabled, while swiping is active only on touch devices by default. To enable it on all types of devices, assign true to the swipeEnabled option. Otherwise, assign false.

jQuery

HTML
$(function() {
    $('#tabPanelContainer').dxTabPanel({
        // ...
        swipeEnabled: false
    });
});
<div id="tabPanelContainer"></div>
Angular

TypeScript
<dx-tab-panel
    [swipeEnabled]="false">
</dx-tab-panel>
import { DxTabPanelModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxTabPanelModule
    ],
    // ...
})
Vue
App.vue
<template>
    <DxTabPanel
        :swipe-enabled="false"
    />
</template>
<script>
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import DxTabPanel from 'devextreme-vue/tab-panel';

export default {
    components: {
        DxTabPanel
    }
};
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import { TabPanel } from 'devextreme-react/tab-panel';

class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <TabPanel
                swipeEnabled={false}
            />
        );
    }
}

export default App;

You can switch the views progrmmatically using the selectedIndex or selectedItem option.

$(function() {

        // ...
        selectedIndex: 1
    });
});
<div id="tabPanelContainer"></div>

<dx-tab-panel

import { DxTabPanelModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    selectedIndex: number;

    constructor() {
        this.selectedIndex = 1;
    }
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxTabPanelModule
    ],
    // ...
})
Vue
App.vue
<template>
    <DxTabPanel
        :selected-index.sync="selectedIndex"
    />

<script>
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import DxTabPanel from 'devextreme-vue/tab-panel';

export default {
    components: {
        DxTabPanel
    },
    data() {
        return {
            selectedIndex: 1
        }
    }
};
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import { TabPanel } from 'devextreme-react/tab-panel';

class App extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props);
        this.state = {
            selectedIndex: 1
        }
    }

    handleOptionChange = (e) => {
        if(e.fullName === 'selectedIndex') {
            this.setState({
                selectedIndex: e.value
            });
        }
    }

    render() {
        return (
            <TabPanel
                selectedIndex={this.state.selectedIndex}
                onOptionChanged={this.handleOptionChange}
            />
        );
    }
}

export default App;

The TabPanel can loop the views, which enables an end user to swipe through the last view to the first and vice versa. Views are looped by default. To disable looping, assign false to the loop option.

jQuery
JavaScript
HTML
$(function() {
    $('#tabPanelContainer').dxTabPanel({
        // ...
        loop: false
    });
});
<div id="tabPanelContainer"></div>
Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-tab-panel
    [loop]="false">
</dx-tab-panel>
import { DxTabPanelModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxTabPanelModule
    ],
    // ...
})
Vue
App.vue
<template>
    <DxTabPanel
        :loop="false"
    />
</template>
<script>
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import DxTabPanel from 'devextreme-vue/tab-panel';

export default {
    components: {
        DxTabPanel
    }
};
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import { TabPanel } from 'devextreme-react/tab-panel';

class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <TabPanel
                loop={false}
            />
        );
    }
}

export default App;

To specify whether or not to animate switching between views, use the animationEnabled option.

jQuery
JavaScript
HTML
$(function() {
    $('#tabPanelContainer').dxTabPanel({
        // ...
        animationEnabled: true
    });
});
<div id="tabPanelContainer"></div>
Angular
HTML
TypeScript
<dx-tab-panel
    [animationEnabled]="true">
</dx-tab-panel>
import { DxTabPanelModule } from 'devextreme-angular';
// ...
export class AppComponent {
    // ...
}
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        // ...
        DxTabPanelModule
    ],
    // ...
})
Vue
App.vue
<template>
    <DxTabPanel
        :animation-enabled="true"
    />
</template>
<script>
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import DxTabPanel from 'devextreme-vue/tab-panel';

export default {
    components: {
        DxTabPanel
    }
};
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import { TabPanel } from 'devextreme-react/tab-panel';

class App extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <TabPanel
                animationEnabled={true}
            />
        );
    }
}

export default App;
