    Really excited about the new version of the RadControls, but I'm a little confused about the default behavior of the new TabStrip control when bound to a SiteMap DataSource.

    In the previous version, when attaching the TabStrip (which I use as a navigational element) to the SiteMap, the control automatically displayed the child levels, highlighting the parent elements/path to the current page.

    Now, using the new version of the control, when implemented the exact same way, it no longer behaves as previously described.  It shows the top level tabs, but no longer dsplays the child levels nor highlights the selected/active elements in the path.

    What about the implementation has changed between the two versions that I might be missing?

    Thanks.

    Hello Jack,

    This might be due to a recently fixed problem in RadTabStrip. Please open a support ticket so we can send you the hotfix.

    Hi Albert,
    I seem to have the same issue. I bind a SiteMapNodeCollection to the TabStrip, this works fine when the parent node is selected. However, when the child node is the selected node, only the tabs of the parent strip level are displayed, but not the strip of the child.
    I have installed the latest version of Rad Tools today (2008.1.515.20), but the issue is still there.
    Could I have the hotfix you have mentioned in your post.
    Thank you. Eric.

    Any updates on this?  I just purchased the tools and am trying to display child objects from the sitemap.

    ShowStartingNode="false" on the sitemapdatasource and it will default to the second level.
