sino thomas

sino thomas   ·   2 years ago

In my testing : Scrollbars will only show when running on a browser not visible on devices. Please let me know if show on any device I have updated this plugin so test with new update.

In home screen of my app, I want to integrate 2 tabs with Scrollable Tabs, is it possible?

sino thomas

sino thomas   ·   2 years ago

Yes, 2 Ion-tabs but with different placement. Otherwise it will overlap.

Thomas Pham

Thomas Pham   ·   2 years ago

I viewed your example <ion-tab [root]="HomeRoot" (ionSelect)="selectTab(1)" tabIcon="home" tabTitle="Home"></ion-tab> .... But it will replace my tab root. How can I do?

I tried the [scrollable-tabs] directive and it worked (it showed the scroll). However, it broke the [show] functionality of the ion-tab. If I removed the [scrollable-tabs], the ionic-tab's [show] attribute worked. Do you know how to fix this?

where we should add this peace of code [scrollable-tabs]="selectedTabIndex" in html (i mean in which tag we have to add)

sino thomas

sino thomas   ·   2 years ago

Add [scrollable-tabs]="selectedTabIndex" in <ion-tabs>

sino thomas

sino thomas   ·   2 years ago

as <ion-tabs [scrollable-tabs]="selectedTabIndex" .......

Eddy Ng

Eddy Ng   ·   2 years ago

Sino, I saw that you updated the component 12 days ago. Did it include the fix for the broken [show] functionality of the ion-tab that I mentioned? If not, do you have any plan to fix it?

sino thomas

sino thomas   ·   2 years ago

Eddy, I have fix broken [show] functionality of the ion-tab.

I tried the new component and it didn't work. 1. First of all, the downloaded file didn't have any extension. I assumed it's a zip file because the older download was a .zip file. So, I renamed it to a zip file. But I could not open the zip file in Windows Explorer. I had to use 7-zip to open the zip file. 2. I copied the scrollable-tabs.ts and import it into the declarations section of my app.module.ts. I didn't add it to the entryComponents section because when I did, it gave me an error that scrollable tabs is not a component. 3. The transpiler generated a warning about unused import: OnChanges, SimpleChange. So, I removed them (but not removing them also gave me the same problem as described in the next point). 4. Added the directive to one of my tabs like below: <ion-tabs #ionTabs [scrollable-tabs]="ionTabs"> <ion-tab tabIcon="information-circle" tabTitle="Properties" [root]="tabDocumentInfo" [rootParams]="parentNav"></ion-tab> <ion-tab tabIcon="chatboxes" tabTitle="History & Comments" [root]="tabDocumentHistory" [rootParams]="parentNav"></ion-tab> </ion-tabs> When do "ionic serve" and open my tabbed page, the following error was generated: "TypeError: Cannot read property 'clientWidth' of undefined at ScrollableTabs.scrollToselectedTab (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:106629:48) at ScrollableTabs.ngAfterViewInit (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:106575:14) at CompiledTemplate.proxyViewClass.View_DocumentDetail0.detectChangesInternal (/AppModule/DocumentDetail/component.ngfactory.js:104:73) at CompiledTemplate.proxyViewClass.AppView.detectChanges (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:103101:14) at CompiledTemplate.proxyViewClass.DebugAppView.detectChanges (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:103194:44) at CompiledTemplate.proxyViewClass.View_DocumentDetail_Host0.detectChangesInternal (/AppModule/DocumentDetail/host.ngfactory.js:29:19) at CompiledTemplate.proxyViewClass.AppView.detectChanges (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:103101:14) at CompiledTemplate.proxyViewClass.DebugAppView.detectChanges (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:103194:44) at ViewRef_.detectChanges (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:55572:20) at NavControllerBase._viewAttachToDOM (http://localhost:8100/build/main.js:30595:40)" Can you please help what I did wrong?

get the files from GitHub. not able to load correctly to market.ionic.i

Eddy Ng

Eddy Ng   ·   2 years ago

The code in GitHub is the exact same one that I got yesterday from the ionic market. It's just I had to go through all the hassle of adding .zip extension and opening it with 7-zip. Otherwise, it's the exact same code and as I mentioned above, it generated the error when I tried using it in the ion-tabs in my project. Can you please look at it?

sino thomas

sino thomas   ·   2 years ago

I found the bug and fixed it. bug: "undefined" selectedTab when <ion-tabs selectedIndex="" > not set. fix: By default first tab is selected when selectedIndex property not set on <ion-tabs>.

Eddy Ng

Eddy Ng   ·   2 years ago

Thanks for the quick response and bug fix. I just tested it and it now works. Excellent work.

Hi Sino, I'm trying to implement the scrollable tabs but it's still not very clear to me what are the steps to install it on an existing project as a plugin. Would it be possible for you to post a more detailed step-by-step guide? Thanks!

Javier Castañeda

Javier Castañeda   ·   2 years ago

I was able to implement it. But now when I go back from the tabbed page to my Home screen the tabs don't disappear. Have you ever had that error before?

Hi @sinothomas, it worked really good :) , but I wonder if it would be possible to make it work using segment buttons instead of tabs, since I already have bottom tabs as main navigation and I think multiple/nested tabs are not supported by Ionic 2. Any help would be great, Thanks!

NVM. I found the problem. Apparently, This 'scrollable-tabs' component doesn't like Ionic 3's Lazy Loading. I reverted to the traditional style of page declaration in only my 'TabsPage' and it worked.

Can't bind to 'scrollable-tabs' since it isn't a known property of 'ion-tabs'. I made sure that it was declared in app.module and added to the <ion-tabs> tag. That's what I get.

I have used ionic 3 lazy loading method for both TabsPage and for multiple-tabs. For that I've imported ScrollableTabs in TabsPageModule.js instead of appModule.js

Hi Sino, it works good in ltr direction. But not in rtl. when I change app direction in index.html the 'newScrollLeft' takes wrong value. Please fix it for rtl direction too.
