Sliding Tabs Menu

A sliding background element placed behind the tabs menu. No custom code, only IX.2

A simple No-Code solution to a sliding tabs menu animation.

Using Interactions and positioning the sliding element absolutely behind the tabs menu, we can create an effect of sliding background.

Important points:

  • The wrapping tabs element must have any positioning bside 'Static' (so the moving background wrap element will position relative to it)
  • The sliding background element must have a constant width, which is equal to the menu link width.
