    I'm stumbling once again. This time, I'm trying to dynamically add tabs and an associated pageview to when an item from a RadGrid is selected.

    The tab is created and selected, however the text does not get set, nor does it appear that the pageview is created. I've verified with a radalert that the e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["queueid"].ToString() does return a valid string.

    What am I missing here?

    protected void QueueGrid_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e) 
        if (e.CommandName == "RowClick" && e.Item is GridDataItem) 
            if (RadTabStrip1.FindTabByText(e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["queueid"].ToString()) == null) 
                RadTab tab1 = new RadTab(); 
                RadPageView newpage = new RadPageView(); 
                newpage.ID = e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["queueid"].ToString(); 
                tab1.Text = e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["queueid"].ToString(); 
                tab1.Value = e.Item.OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues[e.Item.ItemIndex]["queueid"].ToString(); 
                tab1.PageViewID = newpage.ID; 
                RadTabStrip1.SelectedIndex = RadTabStrip1.SelectedIndex + 1; 
                RadMultiPage1.SelectedIndex = RadMultiPage1.SelectedIndex + 1;

    Turns out to be an issue with having a TabTemplate. If I remove the following, I can create tabs and pageviews dynamically. Once I add it back, it creates blank tabs.

        <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "Text") %> 
        <img style="margin-left: 10px" src="/images/delete.gif" alt="Delete tab" onclick="deleteTab('<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "Text") %>')" />

    Hi Jason,

    To have the text evaluated, you should call the DataBind() method of the RadTabStrip, e.g. RadTabStrip1.DataBind();

    Hey, I have a question on this, how do I create the pageviews on runtime?  I am trying to do the same thing but I can't seem to find a way to generate a new pageview on runtime.

    Hello Peter,

    Please take a look at our Dynamic RadPageView online example for details on the matter.
