Tabs enable you to enter, display, and alternate between multiple screens. In transactions containing multiple screens, they provide a clearer overview. In addition, tabs enable you to proceed from one tab page to the next without having completed all the data. To access a tab page, select the corresponding tab header.
In some cases, you must complete all required input fields on a tab page before you can move to the next tab page.
- In the case of longer tabstrips, not all of the tabs appear on the screen. The left and right arrows at the top of the tabstrip allow you to scroll to all the tabs.
- If you choose the button at the right of the tabstrip, the system displays a list of all the tabs on the tabstrip. If you select a tab from this list, the selected tab page moves to the foreground.
- Tabs are arranged in order of importance or in the process order of the transaction.
- Tab headers can contain text, icons, or both.
