In my plugin settings page i have to add a lot more settings. To get it correct I need some tabs for better understanding. Here a screenshot as I add it with simple html coding in my rdp-plugin/includes/settings.php

enter image description here

<h3 class="nav-tab-wrapper">     
<a class="nav-tab nav-tab-active" href="#">Test1</a>
<a class="nav-tab" href="#">Test2</a>
<a class="nav-tab" href="#">Test3</a>
<a class="nav-tab" href="#">Test4</a>

But how can I declare some inputs in the tabs 2-6 for editing + saving per tab into table wp_options?

tab-1 is main page of settings file. with a form method="post" i can save the settings from that part correct. but how to do this for the remain tabs is not clear for me.

Found a sample plugin for tabs at plugin-welcome-screen-example but could not get the code from the plugin running in my settings.php file. The example plugin does work standalone. But I do not understand how to get it working in my plugin.

Maybe somebody of you can give me a hint getting tabs working as ask.
