Navigating to (open) specific tab in af:panelTabbed programmatically -Oracle ADF

Hello All,
This post is about a development requirement - how to move (navigate or open) to a specific tab in panel tabbed  in Oracle ADF?
Suppose i have to open second tab of af:panelTabbed on a button click, so see how to do this using ADF Faces
  • Create a Fusion Web application and a page to drop panel tabbed and a button


  • now bind panel tabbed and it's showDetailItem to managed bean, in order to use disclosed property and to get client id
  • See the code to open (disclose) a specific tab of af:panelTabbed
        //Binding of Panel Tabbed
        private RichPanelTabbed panelTabBind;
    
        public void setPanelTabBind(RichPanelTabbed panelTabBind) {
            this.panelTabBind = panelTabBind;
        }
    
        public RichPanelTabbed getPanelTabBind() {
            return panelTabBind;
        }
    
        /**
         * @Method to disclose (open) specific tab
         * Pass the binding of af:showDetailItem that you want to open
         */
        public void setDisclosedFirstTab(RichShowDetailItem tabBind) {
            RichPanelTabbed richPanelTabbed = getPanelTabBind();
            for (UIComponent child : richPanelTabbed.getChildren()) {
                RichShowDetailItem sdi = (RichShowDetailItem) child;
                if (sdi.getClientId().equals(tabBind.getClientId())) {
                    sdi.setDisclosed(true);
                } else {
                    sdi.setDisclosed(false);
                }
            }
            AdfFacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addPartialTarget(panelTabBind);
        }
    

  • Now see the code written on button action- here i have checked that which tab is currently disclosed? and based on that i have passed next tab binding to this method



  •     /**Method to be called on Navigate Button
         * @param actionEvent
         */
        public void naviGateButtonAction(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
            if (firstTabBind.isDisclosed()) {
                setDisclosedFirstTab(secTabBind);
            } else if (secTabBind.isDisclosed()) {
                setDisclosedFirstTab(thirdTabBind);
            } else {
                setDisclosedFirstTab(firstTabBind);
            }
        }
    

  • now run your page and see navigation in af:panelTabbed

 Cheers Happy Learning :) Sample ADF Application

  1. thanks for this post. I have a problem when I enable user customization using MDS, this navigation doesn't work anymore! Do you have any idea why?

    2. You also need to use ChangeManager API to notify about property change.
