Any UI tab standard?

Is there any published standard for tab look & feel in XD panels?

In particular, where there might be a dozen or more tabs, so the tab header will clearly need to wrap.

While I’m not aware of any XD-specific standards, all components appear to be based on Adobe’s “Spectrum” Design System. At (docs for the CSS framework implementation of “Spectrum”, spectrum-css), there are examples of tabs which might be as close to a standard as you’ll get…

You can also find their source at, which might be a starting point to get the tabs to look “right”…

(There are also docs for tabs with overflow there, which might fit your use-case)


Thanks, that’s helpful. Should have thought of that…
