Document guidelines for using tabs #526
For Pattern contribution proposal, tell us about your idea...
(delete section if filing a bug)
1. Choose the type of contribution for this pattern:
We currently support two different tab styles in PatternFly that can be applied separately or in combination. See https://rawgit.com/patternfly/patternfly/master-dist/dist/tests/tabs.html for examples. Beyond these examples we have no guidance on when and how designers should apply these tabs in designs. This issue proposes to create a new pattern that documents usage guidelines to go along with these examples.
A new pattern should be added under Forms and Controls.
Note that we currently support including a dropdown menu within a tab. It's not clear what the use case is for this other than collapsing the tab bar into a dropdown when the window width is decreased. Is this pattern currently being used in existing applications? Consider whether this pattern is needed as part of generating these guidelines.
