    The direction of the sliding transitions in kendo mobile is all messed up when you have  3+ tabs.

    The direction of the page transition should always correspond to the relative position of a newly selected tab button in relation to the previously selected tab button.  If a newly selected tab button is to the right of the previously selected tab button, the transition should be from right to left.  If a newly selected tab button is to the left of the previously selected tab button, the transition should be from left to right.  

    But in kendo mobile say you have a TabStrip with three tabs (from left to right), call them A, B, and C.

    The app initializes with tab A selected.  If you click tab B, the page transition moves from right to left (correct).  Then if you click tab C, the page transition moves from right to left (correct).  Then if you click on tab A, the page transition moves from right to left (INCORRECT).

    Hi Ryan,

    By default, the sliding transition direction is determined by the view stack (and if the user is going back or forth) and not by the invoking tab locations. However, such logic can be implemented using click handlers and custom view transitions (docs). 

    Can you please point us to an native application which behaves in the way you describe? I would like to examine this behavior in details. 

    Thank you in advance,
