TabStrips organize content into clickable tabs, enabling efficient navigation and space optimization.

TabStrip Overview

A TabStrip component is a UI element that organizes content into multiple tabs, allowing users to switch between different views or sections of content within a single container. This component is useful for creating clean, navigable interfaces where space is limited, by consolidating related information into tabbed sections that are easily accessible. Each tab acts as a clickable header, with the content area below updating to show the corresponding information when a tab is selected. TabStrip components are widely used in applications ranging from web browsers to complex business dashboards to enhance usability and the organization of information.
