Tabs

Tabs make it easy to switch between different views.

When To Use#

Ant Design has 3 types of Tabs for different situations.

  • Card Tabs: for managing too many closeable views.

  • Normal Tabs: for functional aspects of a page.

  • Radio.Button: for secondary tabs.

Usage upgrade after 4.23.0#

// works when >=4.23.0, recommended ✅
const items = [
  { label: 'Tab 1', key: 'item-1', children: 'Content 1' }, // remember to pass the key prop
  { label: 'Tab 2', key: 'item-2', children: 'Content 2' },
];
return <Tabs items={items} />;

// works when <4.23.0, deprecated when >=4.23.0 🙅🏻‍♀️
<Tabs>
  <Tabs.TabPane tab="Tab 1" key="item-1">
    Content 1
  </Tabs.TabPane>
  <Tabs.TabPane tab="Tab 2" key="item-2">
    Content 2
  </Tabs.TabPane>
</Tabs>;
