About Tabs

Recommended Posts

hi everyone!

I'm looking a way to have some kind of tabs in my home page. I kook around in the web and what I fount out is not exactly what I need. My page is in php but the script for tabs I want it in JavaScript (no way to do it in php).

Here is the code I found out:

http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ ( this is in italian...)

so this is the page:

<div class="tabber"><div class="tabbertab"><h2>Tab 1</h2><p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...</p></div><div class="tabbertab"><h2>Tab 2</h2><p>Duis justo lectus...</p></div><div class="tabbertab"><h2>Tab 3</h2><p>Aliquam porta. Cras dui est...</p></div></div>

and this is the code (in an external js):

function tabberObj(argsObj){  var arg; /* name of an argument to override */  /* Element for the main tabber div. If you supply this in argsObj,	 then the init() method will be called.  */  this.div = null;  /* Class of the main tabber div */  this.classMain = "tabber";  /* Rename classMain to classMainLive after tabifying	 (so a different style can be applied)  */  this.classMainLive = "tabberlive";  /* Class of each DIV that contains a tab */  this.classTab = "tabbertab";  /* Class to indicate which tab should be active on startup */  this.classTabDefault = "tabbertabdefault";  /* Class for the navigation UL */  this.classNav = "tabbernav";  /* When a tab is to be hidden, instead of setting display='none', we	 set the class of the div to classTabHide. In your screen	 stylesheet you should set classTabHide to display:none.  In your	 print stylesheet you should set display:block to ensure that all	 the information is printed.  */  this.classTabHide = "tabbertabhide";  /* Class to set the navigation LI when the tab is active, so you can	 use a different style on the active tab.  */  this.classNavActive = "tabberactive";  /* Elements that might contain the title for the tab, only used if a	 title is not specified in the TITLE attribute of DIV classTab.  */  this.titleElements = ['h2','h3','h4','h5','h6'];  /* Should we strip out the HTML from the innerHTML of the title elements?	 This should usually be true.  */  this.titleElementsStripHTML = true;  /* If the user specified the tab names using a TITLE attribute on	 the DIV, then the browser will display a tooltip whenever the	 mouse is over the DIV. To prevent this tooltip, we can remove the	 TITLE attribute after getting the tab name.  */  this.removeTitle = true;  /* If you want to add an id to each link set this to true */  this.addLinkId = false;  /* If addIds==true, then you can set a format for the ids.	 <tabberid> will be replaced with the id of the main tabber div.	 <tabnumberzero> will be replaced with the tab number	   (tab numbers starting at zero)	 <tabnumberone> will be replaced with the tab number	   (tab numbers starting at one)	 <tabtitle> will be replaced by the tab title	   (with all non-alphanumeric characters removed)   */  this.linkIdFormat = '<tabberid>nav<tabnumberone>';  /* You can override the defaults listed above by passing in an object:	 var mytab = new tabber({property:value,property:value});  */  for (arg in argsObj) { this[arg] = argsObj[arg]; }  /* Create regular expressions for the class names; Note: if you	 change the class names after a new object is created you must	 also change these regular expressions.  */  this.REclassMain = new RegExp('\\b' + this.classMain + '\\b', 'gi');  this.REclassMainLive = new RegExp('\\b' + this.classMainLive + '\\b', 'gi');  this.REclassTab = new RegExp('\\b' + this.classTab + '\\b', 'gi');  this.REclassTabDefault = new RegExp('\\b' + this.classTabDefault + '\\b', 'gi');  this.REclassTabHide = new RegExp('\\b' + this.classTabHide + '\\b', 'gi');  /* Array of objects holding info about each tab */  this.tabs = new Array();  /* If the main tabber div was specified, call init() now */  if (this.div) {	this.init(this.div);	/* We don't need the main div anymore, and to prevent a memory leak	   in IE, we must remove the circular reference between the div	   and the tabber object. */	this.div = null;  }}/*--------------------------------------------------  Methods for tabberObj  --------------------------------------------------*/tabberObj.prototype.init = function(e){  /* Set up the tabber interface.	 e = element (the main containing div)	 Example:	 init(document.getElementById('mytabberdiv'))   */  var  childNodes, /* child nodes of the tabber div */  i, i2, /* loop indices */  t, /* object to store info about a single tab */  defaultTab=0, /* which tab to select by default */  DOM_ul, /* tabbernav list */  DOM_li, /* tabbernav list item */  DOM_a, /* tabbernav link */  aId, /* A unique id for DOM_a */  headingElement; /* searching for text to use in the tab */  /* Verify that the browser supports DOM scripting */  if (!document.getElementsByTagName) { return false; }  /* If the main DIV has an ID then save it. */  if (e.id) {	this.id = e.id;  }  /* Clear the tabs array (but it should normally be empty) */  this.tabs.length = 0;  /* Loop through an array of all the child nodes within our tabber element. */  childNodes = e.childNodes;  for(i=0; i < childNodes.length; i++) {	/* Find the nodes where class="tabbertab" */	if(childNodes[i].className &&	   childNodes[i].className.match(this.REclassTab)) {	  	  /* Create a new object to save info about this tab */	  t = new Object();	  	  /* Save a pointer to the div for this tab */	  t.div = childNodes[i];	  	  /* Add the new object to the array of tabs */	  this.tabs[this.tabs.length] = t;	  /* If the class name contains classTabDefault,	 then select this tab by default.	  */	  if (childNodes[i].className.match(this.REclassTabDefault)) {	defaultTab = this.tabs.length-1;	  }	}  }  /* Create a new UL list to hold the tab headings */  DOM_ul = document.createElement("ul");  DOM_ul.className = this.classNav;    /* Loop through each tab we found */  for (i=0; i < this.tabs.length; i++) {	t = this.tabs[i];	/* Get the label to use for this tab:	   From the title attribute on the DIV,	   Or from one of the this.titleElements[] elements,	   Or use an automatically generated number.	 */	t.headingText = t.div.title;	/* Remove the title attribute to prevent a tooltip from appearing */	if (this.removeTitle) { t.div.title = ''; }	if (!t.headingText) {	  /* Title was not defined in the title of the DIV,	 So try to get the title from an element within the DIV.

And this is the result:


I have now a problem: first my php page give the visitor to see only 2 "tabs" (actualy tables) and 3 or 4 according to the prmitions if they login.. (to arrange this is not a big problem)

the real problem is the layout: I have a table that have an image in each corner and an image as backgroun it each <td> (stored in a css).

this is the site:

How do I re-crerate this table? as I have it in the site?

Something simliar (and, I think, better :lol: ) : ajax tabs

this will load the pages using ajax - as per request, not all pages at a time..therefore, you`ll save bandwidth :D (not everyone will visit your entire site ^_^ )...
