    I have a Tabstrip.
    The following is a snippet showing relevant ASPX code.
    I can select the Tabs in the code behind with rtsTab.SelectedIndex = 2.
    But how can I select the Child-Tabs in the code behind?

    <telerik:RadTabStrip ID="rtsTab" runat="server" OnClientTabSelecting="onTabSelecting"



    SelectedIndex="0" Skin="Vista" Width="100%" MultiPageID="mpTab">






    <telerik:RadTab runat="server" PageViewID="pv1" Selected="True" Text="Tab1">






    <telerik:RadTab runat="server" PageViewID="pv2" Text="Tab2">





    <telerik:RadTab runat="server" Text="Tab3" SelectedIndex="0">






    <telerik:RadTab Text="Child1" PageViewID="pvC1" Selected="True" />



    <telerik:RadTab Text="Child2" PageViewID="pvC2" />

    Hello Thomas,

    You can set the child tab selected using the following code:
     rtsTab.Tabs[2].SelectedIndex = 1; 
    // (or) 
     rtsTab.FindTabByText("Tab3").SelectedIndex = 1;

    Hello Princy, thanks for your answer.

    This works fine when i use it at the page load event but I have stille a problem when I use it with a radgrid and the itemcommand object.

    See the code below. Where is my mistake? The pageview change correctly to the new index but not the Tab to the Child Tab.


    protected void Grid1_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e)




    GridDataItem dataItem = e.Item as GridDataItem;



    string AbrechnungsID= dataItem["Test_ID"].Text;





    rtsTab.Tabs[5].SelectedIndex = 1;


    RadPageView.SelectedIndex = 5;

    Any answer to this?
    I have a button that changes the pageview OK, but won't select the tab in the button click event in code-behind. It works in the OnLoad event, like the original poster.

    Protected Sub ImageButtonFlip_Click(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs) Handles ImageButtonFlip.Click 
            Me.MultiView1.SetActiveView(Me.ViewInformation)         ' This works 
            Me.RadTabStrip1.FindTabByValue("Info").Selected = True  ' This doesn't 
    End Sub

    Hello Guy,

    Here's your modified code snippet that shows the needed approach.

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) 
        Dim tab As RadTab = RadTabStrip1.FindTabByValue("Info"
        tab.Selected = True 
    End Sub
