DMXzone Tabs

“Organize your content in tabs with amazing effects and styles”

You want to organize your content in the best possible way? Now, you can do that with DMXzone Tabs, the extension that gives you the opportunity to divide and style your content into as many sections as needed directly and visually in Dreamweaver! The DMXzone Tabs is for everyone that wants to add any content from simple text to images, videos and even whole pages, all of this rendered live in Dreamweaver design view, so you can switch from tab to tab and edit it right in place.

With the style picker you can choose between the 24 different predefined designs included in this Dreamweaver extension or style it through the CSS to match your website layout. 

Fully customizable, the extension offers amazing effects for a better user experience to stun them right away. The extension is also controllable by behaviors if you want to navigate to a specific tab or start an event within it, and even bind it with other DMXzone extensions.

great extension - counterpart for accordeon

works great and as expected! Regrettably it lacks any support for dynamic content. Websites nowadays use php/mysql a lot. Creaton of static tabs is easy and very well designed, though.

DMXZone Tabs

I just purchased the DMXZone Tabs: This is a preliminary review because I just purchased and installed the tabs control and just had to tell about my initial experience with it.  I want to congratulate DMX Zone on this outstanding tab control.  First, I had no issues with installation (after I recalled my user id and password, that is, to complete the install). After installation I restarted Dreamweaver (I'm running CS3).  Before using the control I downloaded the PDF just to be sure I properly added the component to my test page.  At first, it didn't work because I didn't add it correctly.  So I removed all the code and started again. After following the very clear instructions in the PDF it worked perfectly.  Be certain to follow the instruction in the PDF, they are very clear and simple, you should have no issue with it.  After adding the tab control I played with it to add additional tabs, and then changed content in each tab.  Wow! is all I can say.  This is a dynamite control and for the price it is a tremendous bargain.  Thanks DMX Zone for this control and the great price!
