I think the "simplest" way is to find or import an older rule that still uses this approach and copy/build from there. I have not found a way to build a new one from scratch as it appears those legacy tab options have been removed from the available palette options.
I have one question on the TabGroupLayout that ,as this is the deprecated one in Pega8.1. While using this Layout we can see warning and our compliance score becomes high due to that.Which will somehow affect out application deployment to the higher environment.
Tried this Layout Group(Tab) with Dynamic layout with Dynamic Container but not working
Layout Group(Tab) -
1st Tab - Dynamic layout with Embedded Section
2nd Tab - Dynamic layout with Dynamic Container (Tried with single document and multiple documents)
What is happening is, if we open any work object from 1st Tab the work object is opening in the second tab if you open another work object it is replacing on the second tab even it is multi document mode.
Another disadvantage is that we need to put a section in the Dynamic Container in 2nd Tab. So over all this is not working.
Solution for this is we need to save as the OOTB sections pzShowCaseHierarchyTabs (or) pzStudioContainerTabs to our application ruleset and customize it based on our requirement as these contain Tab Group Layout in PRPC v8.1.
Please note that the Tab Group Layout is removed in Layout palette of the section in PRPC v8.1 but OOTB PegaRULES v8 application is still using the Tab Group Layout.
Not sure why they are still using it if it is not recommended.
Could u pls tell me whether the above solution has met your requirement.I have save the above section and customized it.I have referrenced the above section in pyCaseManagerLinks rule.But iam able to open cases in tabbed layout
According to this post, there is a product enhancement request to make the tabs with dynamic container available again. Are there any news on this?
Just googling this topic reveals that many Pega clients (like us) need a proper solution (and not a workaround with deprecated rules) that works for us. The users of our application are used to opening several work items at the same time as tabs in the main content area of the UI and we want to keep it that way when we upgrade from 7.2.2 to 8.x.
We also have the same requirement. We want to have dynamic tabs that display all open cases. It should also be possible to close those tabs. I was not able to implement this using the new "Layout Group (Tab)". Instead I am using the deprecated "Tab Group" (like used in Pega 8 DEV studio: pzStudioContainerTabs). How can we implement dynamic tabs in Pega 8 that can be closed? I can't find any example for this.
I understand that you have used a work around by saving as the OOTB rules and customized it as per your requirement. However, did you try using an AJAX container instead of a Dynamic container? I tried in my system and it works. Also, one doesn't have to configure a Group Layout as AJAX container allows you to configure the display as tabs.
