dataSource Object|Array|

The data source of the widget which is used to display the items. Can be a JavaScript object which represents a valid data source configuration, a JavaScript array or an existing instance.

If the dataSource option is set to a JavaScript object or array the widget will initialize a new instance using that value as data source configuration.

If the dataSource option is an existing instance the widget will use that instance and will not initialize a new one.

    dataSource: [
      { Name: "Tab1"},
      { Name: "Tab2"}
