Ticket #4501 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Tabs should work with ordered lists (<ol>) in addition to unordered (<ul>)
|Reported by:||BenBlank||Owned by:|
Currently, the tabs component will only read "tabbing" links from unordered lists. As ordered lists use identical structure, this seems like an unnecessary restriction.
Use case: I am currently building a tabbed interface which represents a multi-step application process. The steps (and tabs) are prominently displayed as "1. Getting Started", "2. Personal Info", etc., and the tabbing links have accelerator keys of 1, 2, etc. Clearly, the tabs semantically represent an ordered list, but using one prevents the use of the tabs component.
Find attached a simple patch against ui.tabs.js which will cause the tabs component to use the first list in the target element, regardless of whether it is ordered or unordered.
