    Hi all, 

    I'm looking for some help regarding nested tabstrips and multipages/pageviews.

    I have the following structure:
       Tabstrip (mainTabStrip) with dynamic tabs using contentURL.  e.g. Account.aspx
            Account.aspx holds another tabstrip (accountTabStrip) loading pages using contentURL  e.g. Stock.aspx, Orders.aspx
                  Orders.aspx contains a radgrid with a list of orders. 
                  When an order is clicked I want to open a new tab in mainTabStrip as opposed to the fixed tabstrip in Account.aspx (accountTabStrip)

    My question is: How do obtain a refrence to mainTabStrip in default.aspx from pageviews below this?

    I hope this is clear, but can provide more detailed info if required.

    Cheers in advance for any suggestions.

    Hello Vaticnz,

    In order to get a reference to the RadTabStrip in the top level page you should define a JavaScript function as following:
    function getTabStrip(){
        return $find("tabStripID");

    Then in the nested iframe you should be able to access it using the following approach:
    var tabStrip =

    All the best,

    Thanks Dimitar,

    After I posted my question and actually thought about it a bit more and did exactly as you suggested.
