TabPanel Styling and CSS

The TabPanel control has a simple layout, which makes it easy to style using CSS. For example, tabs appear above the content by default, but you can use CSS to change their position and show them below or vertically stacked, to the left or to the right of the content. You can also choose whether or not to use animation when switching tabs. Moreover, it also allows you to customize the tab headers.

TabPanel

The code example below styles the TabPanel control to display the tabs with center alignment, below the tab content and customized headers. Refer to the TabPanel Styling demo for other alignment options such as left, right etc..

CSS
.wj-tabpanel {
  padding: 0 12px;
}

.wj-tabpane {
  padding: 12px;
}

.wj-tabheader:hover {
  outline: 2px solid rgba(90, 160, 215, .5);
}

/* custom-headers */

.wj-tabpanel.custom-headers .wj-tabpanes {
  border: none;
}

.wj-tabpanel.custom-headers>div>.wj-tabheaders {
  background: black;
  color: white;
  border: none;
}

.wj-tabpanel.custom-headers .wj-tabheaders .wj-tabheader.wj-state-active {
  background: white;
  color: black;
}

.wj-tabpanel.custom-headers .wj-tabheaders .wj-tabheader:not(.wj-state-active) {
  font-weight: normal;
}

.wj-tabpanel.custom-headers .wj-tabheaders .wj-tabheader.wj-state-active:after {
  display: none;
  /* hide underline */
}

/* tabs below */

.wj-tabpanel.tabs-below>div {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: stretch;
}

.wj-tabpanel.tabs-below .wj-tabheaders {
  order: 1;
  /* headers after panes */
}

.wj-tabpanel.tabs-below .wj-tabpanes {
  order: 0;
}

.wj-tabpanel.tabs-below .wj-tabheaders .wj-tabheader.wj-state-active:after {
  top: 0;
  bottom: unset;
