I have a tabstrip for which the content for all tabs are loaded remotely. The content for some of the tabs may take quite some time. Everything works fine from a technical point of view. The problem that I am having is that during the loading of a tab's content, the selected tab cannot be visually distinguished. When selecting the tab, all tabs visually look to be in "inactive" state. I can see the loading indicator, suggesting that content is still loading but I cannot visually determine which tab was selected. So the question is: is there a way to make the selected tab be visually distinquishable during content loading?
I have tried adding the 'k-state-active' class to the selected tab in the "select" event but the manually added class seems to be removed instantly. Using one of the other events doesn't seem to be the solution either.
