Tabs make it easy to explore and switch between different views.

Tabs enable content organization at a high level, such as switching between views.

Present tabs as a single row above their associated content. Tab labels should succinctly describe the content within.

Default tabs

Most of the details about a basic tab have been covered in Components/Navs documentation. Please refer to this page for more details.

Fixed tabs

Fixed tabs display all tabs concurrently and are best used with content that benefits from quick pivots between tabs in fixed positions, such as switching transportation methods for directions in Google Maps.

Fixed tabs have equal width, calculated either as the view width divided by the number of tabs, or based on the widest tab label.

Scrollable tabs

Scrollable tabs display a subset of tabs at any given moment. They can contain longer tab labels and a larger number of tabs than fixed tabs. Scrollable tabs are best used for browsing contexts in touch interfaces when users don’t need to directly compare the tab labels.

N.B. Due to its overflow value, scrollable tabs are not compatible with dropdown componenets.
