    Working with KendoUI Mobile & Phonegap for a month or so, all good so far.   Just hoping for some advice on dynamically building tabs/views (if possible).
    Basically, I would like to have different tabs/views based on the logged in user.  There could be many different combinations of tabs/views. 

    Possible views/tabs: news, about, weather, video, articles, maps, (many more)

    For example,
    User 1 gets views/tabs: news, weather, maps
    User 2 gets view/tabs: video, maps, about

    Do you suggest I build the layout programmatically before the page is loaded?  Inject layout into the DOM?  Programmatically hide tabs not associated with current user?  Other ideas?

    A simple example would be appreciated if what I'd like to do is feasible.

    Thank you.

    Hello Gary,

    Changing the contents of the TabStrip dynamically is not currently supported in Kendo UI Mobile. The best approach that I would suggest is to use create the needed tabstrips as part of the layout, and then using the show event of the layout you can show/hide the tabstrip that you need to display. Please check the following example, showing a possible implementation:
