Defining Tabs

A Tab control is like the dividers in a notebook or the labels on a group of file folders. By using a Tab control, you can define multiple pages for the same Web Part Request to group related fields.

But first you must make sure that the following tasks are completed for the Web Part Request that you want to define a tab for:


You can get an overview of all the tasks you need to complete to create a Web Part here: Creating Web Parts for Employee Portal.

To Define a Tab for a Web Part.
  1. Open the EP Web Part Request Card window.

  1. Select the Web Part Request you want to set up a tab for.

  2. Click Table, Card. The EP WP Table Card  window is opened.

  3. Create a line for the new tab. Fill in the fields. For Help about a specific field, click the field and press F1.



For each Web Part Request, at least one tab must be set up. Otherwise Navision stops the processing with an appropriate message in the event log after receiving a request from the portal page.

After you have defined a tab, you can add fields to the tab and define lookups to list Web Parts from the fields on the tab.
