Step 3:- Create Lightning Component : customTabCmpController.js

From Developer Console >> File >> New >> Lightning Component >> JavaScript Controller

customTabCmpController.js [JavaScript Controller]

  1.    ({
  2. 	tabActionw3webnet : function(component, event, helper) {
  3. 		var thisObj =;
  4.         var sldsTabItemOver = document.getElementById('sldsTabItemOver');
  5.         var scopedItemAll =  sldsTabItemOver.querySelectorAll('.slds-tabs_scoped__item');
  6.         var scopedContent =  sldsTabItemOver.querySelectorAll('.slds-tabs_scoped__content');
  8.         var isActive = document.getElementById(thisObj).classList.contains('slds-is-active');
  10.         for(var i=0; i<scopedItemAll.length; i++){
  11.             scopedItemAll[i].classList.remove('slds-is-active');
  12.             scopedContent[i].classList.add('slds-hide');
  13.         }
  15.         document.getElementById(thisObj).classList.add('slds-is-active'); 
  16.         document.getElementById('active'+thisObj).classList.remove('slds-hide');
  17.         document.getElementById('active'+thisObj).classList.add('slds-show');
  19. 	},
  20. })

Step 4:- Create Lightning Component Style: customTabCmp.css

From Developer Console >> File >> New >> Lightning Component >> Component Style CSS

customTabCmp.css [Style CSS]

  1.   .THIS {
  2. }
  3. .THIS  .slds-tabs_scoped__item.slds-is-active .slds-tabs_scoped__link{color:#b70e01; text-decoration:none;}
  4. .THIS .tabContent{display:block; padding:5px 0 5px 0px; font-size:14px; overflow: hidden;}
  5. .THIS .tabContent .postImage{display: inline-block; float: left; margin-right: 10px;}
