    Hello sudheer,

    There's quite a difference between navigate and postback. If your tabstrip makes postback on tab click then the clicked tab will be automatically selected after the postback. Still, if you are navigating to new pages while clicking on the tabs, then you will have to manually select the needed tab based on the loaded URL. This can be achieved by using the FindTabByUrl method on Page_Load event, i.e.:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)  
    {  
        RadTab tab = RadTabStrip1.FindTabByUrl(Request.Url.PathAndQuery);  
        if (tab != null)  
        {  
            tab.Selected = true;  
            tab.SelectParents();  
            tab.PageView.Selected = true;  
        }  
    }  
     


    All the best,
