There is some misunderstanding. You could create both of them with initial <div/> tag but they have a different structure here. The jqxTabs has additional elements here.
Also, they have a lot of different properties (jqxGrid).
I think you may want to achieve something as ‘breadcrumb’, and I would like to suggest you look at this topic: http://www.jqwidgets.com/community/topic/click-button/
