    I need to do error checking on a page and it happens on the selectedtabevent.  If the page errors out I need them to stay on teh current tab and not go forward until they have picked what they need to do.  So I thought i could se tthe selected index but it seems not to work.  Is there another way to do this?

    function CheckValidation(sender, args) {
               var tab1 = sender.get_selectedIndex();
               if (tab1 == 1) {
                   var combo = $find('<%= ddlSoldCounty.ClientID %>');
                   var item = combo.get_value();
                   if (item = 0)  {
                       if (tab1 == 1) {
                           //Set the selected tab back to 0
                           tab1.sender.set_selectedIndex == 0;
                       alert('You must pick a county from Drop Down List');

    Hi Kevin,

    Please have a look into the following JavaScript to achieve your scenario.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function CheckValidation(sender, args) {
            //your condition
            if (sender.get_selectedIndex() == 1) {
