Need solution to open VF page in new tab

Hi All,
I want to implement a functionality in which when user click on Item it should display information in new Tab instead of new page.
My scenario description:
Name       First Name   Last Name Phone NoStart Date DOB Prog Lang
Emp-0034 Runthistime

 <apex:column headerValue="Name" >
          <apex:outputLink value="/apex/Emp_DisplayForm?id={!a.id}"> {!a.name}</apex:outputLink>                               
  </apex:column>
On click of Emp-0034. it opens item in my custom Emp_DisplayForm as new page. But I want it to be open in new tab?

Thanks.
Srb

Hey,

Just mention target="_blank" with your apex:outputLink tag.
<apex:column headerValue="Name" >
          <apex:outputLink value="/apex/Emp_DisplayForm?id={!a.id}" target="_blank"> {!a.name}</apex:outputLink>                               
  </apex:column>

Hi Saurabh,

You can try like below.
 
<apex:column headerValue="Name" >
          <apex:outputLink value="/apex/Emp_DisplayForm?id={!a.id}" target="_blank"> {!a.name}</apex:outputLink>                               
  </apex:column>

Thanks for quick reply guys. I am don't want to open it new tab of browser.
I want to create a tab in same Page and open Emp_DisplayForm in it.
I think I have to use apex:tabpanel and switchtype = Ajax.
But I am not able to implement it. Not able to connect the activation of apex:tab on outputlink click.
