    Create an inline admin tab in PrestaShop 1.7

    PrestaShop 1.7 introduced new inline tab within the main admin tab. Using these inline tabs minimize so many outside tabs in PrestaShop 1.7 admin panel.

    To add these tab you have to add some line of code in you PrestaShop 1.6 create tab code.

    We can create tab in PrestaShop 1.6 like this,

    public function installTab($className, $tabName, $tabParentName = false)
      $tab = new Tab();
      $tab->active = 1;
      $tab->class_name = $className;
      $tab->name = array();
      foreach (Language::getLanguages(true) as $lang) {
         $tab->name[$lang['id_lang']] = $tabName;
      if ($tabParentName) {
         $tab->id_parent = (int) Tab::getIdFromClassName($tabParentName);
      } else {
         $tab->id_parent = 0;
      $tab->module = $this->name;
      return $tab->add();

    Now if you want to create a Tab hierarchy like this,

    Using the above function you can create your tab,

    $this->installTab('AdminParentTab', 'My Module');
    $this->installTab('AdminModuleTab', 'Module Tab', 'AdminParentTab');
    $this->installTab('AdminSubChildTab', 'Manage Tab', 'AdminModuleTab');
    $this->installTab('AdminTabOne', 'Tab One', 'AdminSubChildTab');
    $this->installTab('AdminTabTwo', 'Tab Two', 'AdminSubChildTab');
    $this->installTab('AdminTabThree', 'Tab Three', 'AdminSubChildTab');

    Line number 5 in the above code,

    $this->installTab('AdminSubChildTab', 'Manage Tab', 'AdminModuleTab');

    this line of tab will be display on hover of ‘Module Tab’, We just have to do now, make this tab as a parent for other subtab. It will automatically display as a inline tab.

    Should we make a controller for each tab?
    What do controllers look like?

    Because I have only the basic controller AdminMyModuleController
    and another controller for a tab that i would like to show.

    Is it possible to have a complete example with controllers?
