Demos/Samples:
(click on a link below to see the corresponding demo/sample)
Warning and Info Tabs The "warnings" tab on the example page has been created via BYZ166 per-product tabs, and the "Info" tab on the example page has been created via BYZ166 as a "functional" tab; the tabs only appears for products that have relevant data in it.


Perhaps you want to display a tab to show a link to a specifications url, but you only want to show your "Specs" tab when you've got the url in your products table. Or, maybe you want to display a text chunk as an extra tab, but only if that text chunk isn't blank. Or, maybe you want to display more complex stuff using lots of product columns, but only display the tab in specific instances depending on the product in question. This addon allows you to configure "dynamic" tabs that only show up when relevant, and you can show them in any order you want.


Technical/Developer Information:
There are 2 ways to create a new tab:

1. Per-Product HTML-Based Tabs
This is used, for example, if a product is a food product, and you want to create a new tab for the product for "Ingredients", where you enter all the HTML for that ingredients tab via the popup "View/Edit Tabs" link on the Edit-Product page.
When you're on the Edit-Product page in admin, press the "View/Edit Tabs" link (under the long-description field) to get the popup where you can create/edit your HTML-Based tabs.
This popup allows you to create as many tabs as you want for a given product, where you specify the label for that tab, and its sequence/ordering number, and the HTML for its contents.
When you create/edit/delete tabs from this popup screen, there is no need to alter the byz_ptb_$config.asp file or to make any changes to the byz_ptb_extra_tabs_inc.asp file.
This is the easiest way of creating new tabs on a per-product basis, as you simply need to add the label and enter the HTML in the popup screen for when you want to show a given chunk of HTML as a new tab on a given product.
By default, all the tabs that you create via the View/Edit Tabs screen will appear immediately to the right (ie after) your "Description" tab. If you want to move these HTML-Based tabs somewhere else (eg to the left of the "Description" tab) then just edit the byz_ptb_$config.asp file in notepad and move this line to the relevant part of the file:
BYZ_PTB_ADD_CONFIG_TABS_PER_PRODUCT

Per Product tabs are compatible with multiple languages, ie you can have different tab labels/content for different languages on a given product.

2. Functional Tabs
This is used, for example, if you already have relevant information in your data and you just want to display that information in a tab when relevant for a given product.
For example, you already hold the supplierid in your products record, and you want to display some details about the relevant supplier in a "Supplier" tab for your customers, but you only want that tab to appear when the product you're viewing has a supplierid stamped on it.
Another example would be if you're selling DVDs and you only want to stamp the rating on your products records (eg you want to put "18" or "15" etc in pother5) and you want to create a "Rating" tab which shows a standard block of HTML depending on the rating, without having to manually create the tab data via option 1.
i.e. This is not entered from the View/Edit Tabs screen like option 1, instead this is a more complex function-based tab, which looks at the product data of the product in question, works out what the HTML contents of the tab should be, and then outputs the tab if relevant to that product. If you want to use this "functional" type of customized-tab, then read the usage file which explain how you can create them.
If you don't want to use this "functional" type of customized-tab, and you just want to create HTML-Based tabs on a per-product basis, then you can simply use option 1 mentioned above.

All the processing to show the relevant tabs in the relevant instances is done for you behind the scenes at browse-time by this module's tab functions. We've provided several examples, and loads of notes/comments in the files to explain how to setup tabs using this module.

The addon includes simple, easy to follow installation notes, as well as more detailed "usage" notes to explain how to create customized tabs, with loads of examples.
