The Tabs web part enables you to quickly and easily add in-page dynamic tabbed navigation to groups of web part pages based on data entered into the Report - Tabs list.

This enables you to have extra navigation without having to clutter up the Quick Launch. This can be very useful if you have multiple web part pages with a common grouping (called a Page Group in the Tabs list), for example Work reports. As with the Top Link bar, the currently selected tab is bolded to aid navigation.

The Tabs from Lists web part updates automatically when items are added to the Tabs list - you do not need to configure the web part for new items to show up.

The titles, grouping, order and URLs of the individual tabs are specified in the Report - Tabs list.

The appearance of the Tabs is based on the currently selected Site Theme. If you select a new Site Theme, the appearance of the tabs will automatically update. For more information on SharePoint Site themes, please consult the SharePoint documentation.
