1 views_ui.admin.inc views_ui_edit_page_display_tabs($view, $display_id = NULL)

Adds tabs for navigating across Displays when configuring a View.

This function can be called from hook_menu_local_tasks_alter() to implement these tabs as secondary local tasks, or it can be called from elsewhere if having them as secondary local tasks isn't desired. The caller is responsible for setting the active tab's #active property to TRUE.


view $view: The view which will be configured.

$display_id: The display_id which is configured on the current request.
