);

Controlled Tabs

To control Tabs state provide value and onTabChange props:

import { useState } from 'react';
import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
const [activeTab, setActiveTab] = useState<string | null>('first');
return (
<Tabs value={activeTab} onTabChange={setActiveTab}>
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second">Second tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Panel value="first">First panel</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.Panel value="second">Second panel</Tabs.Panel>
</Tabs>
);
}

Uncontrolled Tabs

If you do need to subscribe to Tabs state changes use defaultValue:

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="first">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second">Second tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Panel value="first">First panel</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.Panel value="second">Second panel</Tabs.Panel>
</Tabs>
);
}

Icon and right section

You can use any React node as icon and rightSection in Tabs.Tab component:

Change colors

To change colors of all tabs set color on Tabs component, to change color of the individual tab set color on Tabs.Tab. color should be a key of theme.colors:

First tab color is teal, it gets this value from context
Second tab color is blue, it gets this value from props, props have the priority and will override context value
import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs color="teal" defaultValue="first">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">Teal tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second" color="blue">
Blue tab
</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Panel value="first" pt="xs">
First tab color is teal, it gets this value from context
</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.Panel value="second" pt="xs">
Second tab color is blue, it gets this value from props, props have the priority and will
override context value
</Tabs.Panel>
</Tabs>
);
}

Tabs position

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="first">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second">Second tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="third">Third tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

To display tab on the opposite side, set margin-left to auto with ml="auto" prop:

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="chat">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="chat">Chat</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="gallery">Gallery</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="settings">Settings</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="account" ml="auto">
Account
</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

Inverted tabs

To make tabs inverted, place Tabs.Panel components before Tabs.List and add inverted prop to Tabs component:

Chat panel
Account panel
import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="chat" inverted>
<Tabs.Panel value="chat" pb="xs">Chat panel</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.Panel value="gallery" pb="xs">Gallery panel</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.Panel value="account" pb="xs">Account panel</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="chat">Chat</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="gallery">Gallery</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="account">Account</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

Disabled tabs

Set disabled prop on Tabs.Tab component to disable tab. Disabled tab cannot be activated with mouse or keyboard, will be skipped when user navigates with arrow keys:

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="chat">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="chat">Chat</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="gallery">Gallery</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="settings" disabled>
Settings
</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="account">Account</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

Activation mode

By default, tabs are activated when user presses arrows and Home/End keys. To disable that set activateTabWithKeyboard={false} on Tabs component, then user will be able to deactivate active tab by clicking on it:

Chat panel
Account panel

Tab deactivation

By default, active cannot be deactivated. To allow that set allowTabDeactivation on Tabs component:

Chat panel
Account panel

Unmount inactive tabs

By default, inactive Tabs.Panel will stay mounted, to unmount inactive tabs, set keepMounted={false} on Tabs. This is useful when you want to render components that impact performance inside Tabs.Panel. Note that components that are rendered inside Tabs.Panel will reset their state on each mount (tab change).

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
// Second tab panel will be mounted only when user activates second tab
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs keepMounted={false} defaultValue="first">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second">Second tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Panel value="first">First panel</Tabs.Panel>
<Tabs.Panel value="second">Second panel</Tabs.Panel>
</Tabs>
);
}

Unstyled Tabs

Set unstyled prop on Tabs component to remove all non-essential library styles.

Chat panel
Account panel

By doing so, you will be able to keep component behavior while providing your own styles with Styles API:

Get tab control ref

import { useRef } from 'react';
import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
const secondTabRef = useRef<HTMLButtonElement>(null);
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="first">
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="Second" ref={secondTabRef}>
Second tab
</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="third">Third tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

Usage with react-router

<Route path="/tabs/:tabValue" element={<Demo />} />
import { useNavigate, useParams } from 'react-router-dom';
import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
const navigate = useNavigate();
const { tabValue } = useParams();
return (
<Tabs value={tabValue} onTabChange={(value) => navigate(`/tabs/${value}`)}>
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second">Second tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

Usage with Next.js router

// For file /tabs/[activeTab].tsx
import { useRouter } from 'next/router';
import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
const router = useRouter();
return (
<Tabs
value={router.query.activeTab as string}
onTabChange={(value) => router.push(`/tabs/${value}`)}
>
<Tabs.List>
<Tabs.Tab value="first">First tab</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="second">Second tab</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

Accessibility

Tabs component follows WAI-ARIA recommendations on accessibility.

Notes

If you use Tabs.Tab without text content, for example, only with icon, then set aria-label:

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
import { IconCoin } from '@tabler/icon';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="chat">
<Tabs.List>
{/* aria-label is not required, tab is labelled by children */}
<Tabs.Tab value="chat">Chat</Tabs.Tab>
{/* aria-label is required, tab is not labelled by children */}
<Tabs.Tab icon={<IconCoin size={14} />} value="money" aria-label="Get money" />
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}

To set tabs list label, set aria-label on Tabs.List component, it will be announced by screen reader:

import { Tabs } from '@mantine/core';
function Demo() {
return (
<Tabs defaultValue="recent">
{/* Tabs.List aria-label will be announced when tab is focused for the first time */}
<Tabs.List aria-label="Chats">
<Tabs.Tab value="recent">Most recent</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="recent">Unanswered</Tabs.Tab>
<Tabs.Tab value="archived">Archived</Tabs.Tab>
</Tabs.List>
</Tabs>
);
}
