I have a tab strip bound to a sitemap data source control.  I need some of the links to open in their own window.  How can I do this?

Hey Samantha,

I know TabStrip has a target property for each item that you can set to _blank (aka, new window)...  is that something that you can do in design-time or are you doing everything dynamically?

I need to do it dynamically.  I created an extra attribute in the sitemap, target="_blank" and was trying to check the value (I did this once before with a .Net menu control) and then set the tab property, but I couldn't figure out how to apply it to the tabs.

this is helpful, but it's not working.  I get the following error:

DataBinding: 'System.Web.SiteMapNode' does not contain a property with the name 'target'.

When I tried:

e.Tab.Target = (

string)DataBinder.Eval(e.Tab.DataItem, "target");

I also tried:

XmlElement element = (XmlElement)e.Tab.DataItem;

e.Tab.Target = element.Attributes["target"].Value;

and I got:

Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.SiteMapNode' to type 'System.Xml.XmlElement'.

A typical sitemap node in my sitemap looks like:

<

siteMapNode url="" title="" target=""></siteMapNode>

Hi Samantha,

Please find below a sample code snippet that shows the needed approach.

protected void RadTabStrip1_TabDataBound(object sender, RadTabStripEventArgs e)  
{  
    SiteMapNode siteMapNode = (SiteMapNode)e.Tab.DataItem;  
    string CustomProperty = siteMapNode["target"];  
    e.Tab.Target = CustomProperty;
