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();

$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');
