The view will not be rendered in the tabstrip since you are navigating to a different action. In order to render the create, edit, etc. views in the tabstrip you could add an iframe in the tab content. The alternative is to configure the links to make a request to the tabstrip action and render a different partial view in the content based on an additional parameter.
