Should a given tab contain all information specific and unique to that tab? Or is it okay for other content outside of the tab to change when I select a tab? Is there a named principle/rule/law related to this?
Edit: For those wanting more context: Imagine I have 4 tabs that show information on 4 different cars. Is it wrong if the picture of the car displays outside of each respective tab and changes when I select each tab? Arguably, the picture of the car should be within the tab since it is related to the selected tab.
