- Tabs make it possible to structure content, such as longer texts.
- They can be used for forms that have, for example, extensive options or special settings.
- A pure input field or a form for creating an entry should not use tabs. Instead, all of the elements required to create an entry should be in a view. A section indicator is better suited for sequences.
- The number of tabs should be limited to a reasonable number.
- Tab rows of two or more lines are not allowed. In this case, other filters or selection models should be considered.
