Hi All

How do I get the value of the DataFieldID when a user clicks on a tab?

I can get the text value of the tab with e.Tab.Text, but I need the ID to do a lookup.

Hello Andy Green,

DataFieldId is used only during databinding. This property is not mapped as any property of the tab objects. You can however set the DataValueField of the tabstrip to the same value. Then the Value property of the tabs will contain the required setting:

RadTabStrip1.DataFieldID = "MyFieldID";
RadTabStrip1.DataValueField = "MyFieldID";

All I can get by way of a value is the field name (Database column name), not the data value, what am I doing wrong.

Hello Andy Green,

Did you use the Value property of the tab object?

Intellisense does not provide one so guess not.
I'll persevere.
