If it affects every tab/page in the dialog, place it outside, for example beside the window's OK and Cancel buttons. Make sure changes on one tab will not change options on another tab. ===Tabbed Dialogs=== '''When to Use''' Use tabbed dialogs when you have a limited number of tabs (max. 6). If you cannot see all the tabs without scrolling or splitting them into multiple rows, you are probably using too many and should use a paged dialog instead. [[File:Tabs_good.png]] GOOD [[File:Tabs_bad.png]] BAD ===Paged Dialogs=== '''When to Use''' Always use paged dialogs for configuration dialogs - assuming that there is more than one section of options to be configured. For other dialogs, use paged dialogs if there are too many tabs to put them into a tabbed dialog. [[File:Tabs_pages2.png]] ===Accessibility=== Do not assign accelerator keys to tab and paged dialog labels. Assign an access key to every other control on each page, however. === See Also === * [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Dialogs|Dialogs]] Template used on this page: Template:Moved To Community (view source) Return to Projects/Usability/HIG/Tabs Pages.
