Css Course

Tabs are generally used to break content into multiple sections that can be swapped to save space. The tabs effect displays a single content area with multiple panels (sections), each associated with a header (or tab) in a list.
- This effect is created only with CSS and HTML, without JavaScript.

Code (click to select):
<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8" />

- The technique is simple, the content is positioned "absolute" and it is initialy hidden. There are used radio type buttons with label tag associated to each button. The radio buttons are hidden, but when the associated label is clicked, that radio is checked, event that can be detected in css (with: " .tab [type=radio]:checked "), and the content from that tab (label element) it is displayed (with: " .tab [type=radio]:checked ~ label ~ .content { display: block; } ").
