Getting Started

This section briefly explains about how to create a simple Tab component and configuring the Tab header content in React.

Dependencies

The following is the list of dependencies required to use the Tab component in your application.

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-react-navigations
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-react-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-navigations
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons
        |-- @syncfusion/ej2-popups

Setup for Local Development

You can use create-react-app to setup the applications. To install create-react-app run the following command.

npm install -g create-react-app
  • To setup basic React sample use following commands.
create-react-app quickstart --scripts-version=react-scripts-ts

cd quickstart
create-react-app quickstart

cd quickstart

Adding Syncfusion packages

All the available Essential JS 2 packages are published in npmjs.com public registry. To install Tab component, use the following command

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-react-navigations --save

Adding CSS reference

Add components style as given below in src/App.css.

@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-buttons/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-popups/styles/material.css';
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-react-navigations/styles/material.css';

To refer App.css in the application then import it in the src/App.tsx file

Initialize the Tab using JSON items collection

The Tab can be rendered by defining a JSON array. The item is rendered with header text and content for each Tab.

  • Import the Tab component to your src/App.tsx file using following code.

In the above sample code, element is the id of the HTML element in a page to which the Tab is initialized.

Initialize the Tab using HTML elements

The Tab component can be rendered based on the given HTML element using <TabComponent> tag. Header section must be enclosed with in a wrapper element using e-tab-header class and corresponding content must be mapped with e-content class. You need to follow the below structure of HTML elements to render the Tab,

  <TabComponent id='defaultTab'>   --> Root Tab element
    <div class="e-tab-header">      --> Tab header
       <div>   --> Header Item
       </div>
    </div>
    <div class="e-content">      --> Tab content
       <div>   --> Content Item
       </div>
    </div>
  </TabComponent>
