    I would like to create tabs sections within certain pages. i.e. customer pages.

    However, I cannot find a more recent example. Please share if you can. Thank you!

    QuickBase presently serves jQuery UI on its pages so all you have to do is use it according to the documentation:

    I can see how this example works on the dashboard, but not on forms.  Am I wrong?

    It works on forms but you have to do some additional work to repackage some of QuickBase's trimmings such as the section dividers and the hide/show button. This customized form converts the section headings to tab labels and removes the section dividers and hide/show buttons:

    Dan - When this method works it works brilliantly. However, I am noticing that sometimes not all of the sections are being replaced with tabs.

    Refreshing the page tends to resolve the issue, but this was all intended to limit refreshes...

    Any suggestions?

    [mention://513 @dandiebolt_QB_Pirate] I clicked on your first link "New Tabs In Town" but, I cannot access.

    I want to create a nagivation UI tab for my users that allowed them to click on tabs and see that section ONLY.

    I see that UI tabs can be used for this, but I'm not sure how to go about that. Your link is there closest thing I have to guide. Any idea?
