What's the name of this vertical tab-like menu control?

I've been trying to recreate this sort of component in JavaFX for a while. The thing is, it looks like a ListBox yet each item functions like a tab. In web design, I'd simply call this a "navigation panel" or something like that.

Here's an example of it from someone's Dribbble, it's the part on the left that controls what's being shown on the right.

I've seen these types of menus in accordions and all sorts. I just don't know what to call them other than listboxes, menus etc.

So, is the real name of this component a listbox or is it something else?

These are called vertical tabs.
