A TABBED PANE is a visible region onto which Child GUI Objects are added. It is comprised of the Diagram Region on the left and the Input Region on the right.

A TABBED PANE may have a Child TABBED PANE LIST which in turn may have a Child TABBED PANE This is called Nesting and can be used to achieve the GUI structure that suits the needs of the EASAP.

Optional Parameters:
Tab:Text label displayed on tab
Show if:Logical expression, if FALSE then line NOT shown else default→TRUE
Diagram:Name(s) of diagram(s) to be displayed on the TABBED PANE's Diagram Region
Enable if:Logical expression, if TRUE then pane enabled, if FALSE then pane NOT enabled

Each Child Style: must be left blank or else it will take precedence over the Parent TABBED PANE→Style:
Show DORs:A list of Child objects to be shown in Analyse EASAP mode.

Show if:

The Show if: parameter, allows building logic into EASAPs, thus allowing what is displayed in the user interface to be dependent on user inputs. For details on using logical expressions, see Logical Expressions.

For the top level TABBED PANE tabbed_pane1, Show if: is not used—this TABBED PANE is always shown.

Enable if:

The Enable if: parameter is similar to Show if: except that it doesn’t ever hide an object, it just disables it. In many cases, the object will be ‘grayed out’ to indicate being disabled.

Tab Type: 'Panel Bars'

Nested TABBED PANE's can be displayed as collapsible panel bars in the Web Browser Client. This display mode is specified using the Tab Type: parameter, which is only available on nested TABBED PANE's.

An example of panel bar display mode is shown below:
