Xrm.Page.ui.tabs Collection

[Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011]

Xrm.Page.ui.tabs is a collection of all the tabs present on the page. This collection provides methods to retrieve or perform actions on each of the tabs on the page.

Examples shown are in the Sample: SDK.TabCollectionSamples.js library.

The table below lists all the methods of Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.

 

Method Description

forEach

Applies the action contained within a delegate function.

get

Returns one or more tabs depending on the arguments passed.

getLength

Returns the number of tabs in the collection.

forEach

Applies the action contained within a delegate function.

Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.forEach(
delegate function(tab, index)
)
Arguments
Delegate function with parameters for tab and index.

Example: The SDK.TabCollectionSamples.listTabs function uses an anonymous function defined within the argument to display a message showing the tabs that contain the letter 'a' in their label.


SDK.TabCollectionSamples.listTabs = function () {
 var message = "The following tabs contains the letter 'a' in their label:\n";

 Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.forEach(function (tab, index) {
  var tabLabel = tab.getLabel();

  if (tabLabel.toLowerCase().indexOf('a') != -1) {
   message += "  \u2219 " + tabLabel + "\n";
  }
 });

 alert(message);
};

Example: The SDK.TabCollectionSamples.listTabs_Example2 function passes a reference to a function defined outside the argument to display a message showing the tabs that contain the letter 'a' in their label.


SDK.TabCollectionSamples.listTabs_Example2 = function () {
 window.message = "The following tabs contains the letter 'a' in their label:\n";

 Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.forEach(SDK.TabCollectionSamples.addTabToMessage);

 alert(window.message);
 window.message = null;
};

SDK.TabCollectionSamples.addTabToMessage = function (tab, index) {
 var tabLabel = tab.getLabel();

 if (tabLabel.toLowerCase().indexOf('a') != -1) {
  window.message += "  \u2219 " + tabLabel + "\n";
 }
};

 var firstTabByIndex = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get(0);

 if (allTabs[0] == firstTabByIndex) {

 }
};

 var tab = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get(tabName);
 if (tab != null) {
  alert("The tab with the name '" + tabName + "' does exist on the form.  It has a label of '" + tab.getLabel() + "'.");
 }
 else {
  alert("No tab with the name '" + tabName + "' exists on the form.");
 }
};

 var firstAndLastTab = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get(function (tab, index) {
  return index == 0 || index == tabsLength - 1;
