    Hello, I am using the RadPageView in a dialog box with about 10 different tabs. I want to set the first tab to be selected by default programatically so I use the code:

    RadPageView1.SelectedPage = tabAutomation

    in the form load handler, and this works, however, when the page is rendered the selected tab is not visible. This seems to happen if a tab that is down the line was selected at build time. Is there a property that will bring the selected tab into view at runtime?

    Hi Don,

    Thank you for writing.

    I will recommend selecting the desired tab (the first one in your case) at design time - simply select it in the control at design time. This way, this page will be selected at runtime and the page item (tab) will be visible. 

    I have tested the code that you have provided and indeed the tab is not visible, regarding the fact that its page is selected. I will add this into our PITS system, and we will address it in a future release. Here is a link to the item, where you can add your vote for it.

    Your Telerik points have been updated for this report.

    I hope that you find this information helpful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
