We have a requirement to navigate between tabs using back and next buttons; an additional requirement is that if a tab contains a child tabstrip the next button should begin navigating through the child tabs before continuing on with the parent tabs.
The basic structure is as follows:
Parent tabstrip contains tabs 1, 2, 3. Tab 2 contains a child tabstrip with tabs 4, and 5.
Beginning on tab 1, clicking the next button should select tab 2. Once on tab 2 clicking next should select tab 4. Once on tab 4 clicking next should select tab 5. Once on tab 5 clicking next should select tab 3. Clicking back should do the reverse.
I have no problem going forward from 1 -> 2 -> 4 -> 5; I have no problem going back within a single tabstrip 5 -> 4 or 2 -> 1, however, going from child up to parent , 4 -> 2, doesn't work; it seems tab 2 never has gets selected or activated.
Any ideas on how to accomplish this? I've included a simplified prototype of our initial approach.
Thanks for any advice.
