JavaScript tabifier

Damn, was I beaten to the punch?

A while back I was working on an automated tabifier using JavaScript, then this popped up today in the popular page in deli.icio.us: Link

I shouldn’t post unfinished code, but damn it, I think mine is better! :-)

My tabs are completely CSS controlled, they look great without JavaScript and the page always prints (I think a lot of DHTML developers do not take into effect that a page will be printed).

Anyway, check it out here: JavaScript tabifier

If you like it please contact me – with enough encouragement I might continue this project.

    I’ve been looking for and trying out many tab scripts, but yours is making it at the top of my short list at the moment.

    Ok, first, a disclaimer: I’m a Javascript ignoramus. All I can do is download scripts, figure out how the darn thing is supposed to work, monkey here, monkey there and voila! I don’t know how it works, but hey, it works.

    One thing still buggers me with your tabifier: I would like to find a way to get rid of the tooltip that gets displayed when the user mouses over each tab’s container – while keeping a full title, instead of numbers for the tabs.

    Any idea?

    Also, how hard would it be to implement tab selection persistence?

    In any case, congrats and thanks for a very cool (and easy on idiots like me) piece of work!

    “get rid of the tooltip”
    I’m hoping to add an option that lets you specify an element within the tag from which the title can be obtained, instead of requiring a title attribute. That would solve your problem.

    “how hard would it be to implement tab selection persistence”
    It’s on my todo list (using a cookie).

    Stay tuned to my blog and the tabber forum for updates.
