    Silverlight tabcontrol is a very cool tool. now I have three tabs under same tabcontrol. 
    first tabitem, is a login, second and third tabs are related information. basically, what I am trying to do is once a user logs himself in, the other two tabs will be activated and display corresponding information.

    How can I do this? I do not know how to pass an event through tab control and I do not want to make separate pages. thanks in advance.

    Hi James,

    You have plenty of options to do that. Simply, you could modify the TabControl's Items collection (or ItemsSource when using MVVM and data binding) when you need to activate (add) new tabs and deactivate (remove) current one. By adding/removing tabs dynamically you have a great flexibility what would be displayed or active on the screen. Alternatively you could set the RadTabItem Visibility property to Collapsed or Visible and simulated the add/remove approach.

    In addition you may employ data binding and MVVM to populate the data and communicate between different tabs more easily.
