An accessible tabs component.
TabPanel elements are associated by their order in the tree.
None of the components are empty wrappers, each is associated with a real DOM
element in the document, giving you maximum control over styling and

TabPanels as children. The order doesn't matter,
you can have tabs at the top, at the bottom, or both.
Tab variants and color#
Tabs come in 6 different variants to style the tabs:
You can also change the color for any specific variant by passing the

Styling the tab states manually#
In event you need to create custom styles for the tabs. Simply set the variant

_active style props.

tabs. If you intend to control the tabs programmatically, use this with the

Manually Activated Tabs#
Tabs are activated automatically. This means when you use the
arrow keys to change tabs, the tab is activated and focused.
The content of a
TabPanel should ideally be preloaded. However, if switching
to a tab panel causes a network request and possibly a page refresh, there
might be some notable latency and this might affect the experience for
keyboard and screen reader users.
In this scenario, you should use a manually activated tab, it moves focus without activating the tabs. With focus on a specifc tab, users can activate a tab by pressing Space or Enter.
Like form inputs, a tab's state can be controlled. Make sure to include an onChange as well, or else the tabs will not be interactive.

Yeah yeah. What's up?
Oh, hello there.
Creating custom tab components#
TabList needs to know the order of the children, we use
to pass state internally. If you want to know if a tab is active, you can wrap
it, and then inspect clone props passed in.
If you'd like to drive your tabs with an array instead of using the granular components, you can create your own DataTabs component.
