Hello,

I have a TabStrip with a RadMultiPage that is loaded dynamically based on a table in my database.  This TabStrip can consist of three levels of tabs (parent, middle-child, and bottom-child).  

Here's the code that generates the tabs:
if (!IsPostBack)
{
    rtabstripTabs.DataFieldID = "tabID";
    rtabstripTabs.DataFieldParentID = "parentTabId";
    rtabstripTabs.DataTextField = "tabLabel";
    rtabstripTabs.DataValueField = "filePath";
    rtabstripTabs.DataSource = tabs;
    rtabstripTabs.DataBind();
}

Here's the HTML for the TabStrip:
<telerik:RadTabStrip ID="rtabstripTabs" runat="server" OnTabClick="rtabstripTabs_TabClick"
    MultiPageID="rmultipageUserContol" EnableEmbeddedSkins="False">
</telerik:RadTabStrip>
<telerik:RadMultiPage ID="rmultipageUserContol" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadPageView runat="server" ID="rpageviewUserControl">
    </telerik:RadPageView>
</telerik:RadMultiPage>


The "filePath" is a link to user control pages that will be displayed when the user clicks on a tab.

I'm trying to figure out how to load the user control content in these two scenarios:
1- When the tab (page) first loads I want the content of its user control be displayed automatically.  Since the TabStrip is dynamically created the name and value of this tab could be different.

2- When the user clicks on subsequent tabs I want to display the content (user control page) of the first child tab (this could either be a child on the 2nd level or a child on the 3rd level.  The tab levels are also dynamic, and depends of the content of the table in the database).  I know how to display the content when the user clicks on a tab that has no children.

Any help will be very much appreciated.  I am a new Telerik user, and I have not been able to figure out how to do this on my own.  Thanks.

Well, I figured out how to select and show the content of the first (main) tab when the TabStrip first loads
rtabstripTabs.Tabs[0].Selected = true;
RadTab TabSelected = rtabstripTabs.SelectedTab;
string filePath = TabSelected.Value;
Control ctrl = (Control)LoadControl(filePath);
rpageviewUserControl.Controls.Add(ctrl);
rmultipageUserContol.SelectedIndex = 0;
 
Now, I need to figure out how to show the contents of the deepest nested tab when one of the top level tabs is clicked.  I almost have it working by using the following client-side code:
<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientTabSelected(sender, eventArgs) {
        var tabStrip = sender;
        var tab = eventArgs.get_tab();
        if (tab.get_tabs().get_count() > 0) {
            tab.get_tabs().getTab(0).click();
        }
    }
</script>

The code above works sometimes, but then when I click on the other tabs in the TabStrip nothing happens.

Can anyone please help me with this?  I've been looking all over this site, but I haven't been able to find the solution.  Thanks.

Hello Shawn,

I would like to ask you to submit a support ticket and attach your current implementation (isolated in a runnable sample) so we could inspect it locally and replicate the described problem. Thus we would be able to pinpoint the problem and provide you with the proper solution.
