If you would like to check if some specific tab exists, you could assign a unique id to the tabs and perform the check with jQuery.
tabstrip = $(
You could take a look at the following JS Bin example
which demonstrates this.
Regarding your second question if you are referring to removing the tab from the widget, you could use some custom button in the TabStrip markup, and call the remove
method on click.
