The form-based content editor allows to group editor fields in tabs. The fields of which schema elements should be shown in which tabs is configured in the schema definition.
Tabs are configured in the schema definition under
xsd:annotations/xsd:appinfo. Use the node
<tabs> to configure them. If used without sub-nodes, the tabs are configured automatically by OpenCms. To set up the tabs explicitely according to your needs, use a sub-node
<tab> for each of them:
<tabs> <tab element="Title" collapse="false" name="General" /> <tab element="Author" collapse="false" name="AuthorTab" /> <tab element="Availability" collapse="true" name="Availability" /> </tabs>
In the example, three tabs are defined. Each
<tab> element is configured via its attributes as follows:
Name of the first
<xsd:element> placed in the tab.
If only one element (typically a nested content with sub-elements) should appear in one tab, the element's name can be hidden. Therefor, set
collapse="true". Otherwise, omit it, or set it to
Define the name shown in the tab. This attribute supports
%(key.) macro to insert localized messages. If the attribute is not given, the element's name is used as tab name.
