    Hello -

    I have a tabstrip setup on a page in my system. It was initially setup to show the 4 most popular categories as tabs with a 5th tab to alowing users to click to view more categories. Because we only have 15 categories and most visitors only see 7-9 I thought I would just enable scrolling. However, when I enable scrolling, ALL the tabs disappear. The SAME code without tabs enabled works fine, I just have extra code for the datasource to only grab the top 4 categories and then manually add a fifth row.

    Below is the relevant code, please note I am using CSS to define a custom look/feel for the tabs.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am spinning my wheels on this.

    P.S. - The next, prev arrows show up to the right of the tabs div as I would expect them too. The number of times I can click next seems odd though as it lets me click 21 times, there would be a max of 15 tabs and 6 could fit in the area provided.

    <div id="tabs">   
        <telerik:RadTabStrip ID="rtsCategoryList" runat="server" skin="" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" Width="788px" Height="20px"   
            OnTabClick="rtsCategoryList_TabClick" ScrollChildren="true"   
            PerTabScrolling="true" ScrollPosition="0" BackColor="#000000" ScrollButtonsPosition="Right">

                // Build the tabs.

                    RadTab newTab = new RadTab();  
                    newTab.Value = row["categoryId"].ToString();  
                    newTab.Text = row["categoryName"].ToString();  
                    newTab.CssClass = "tab";  
                    newTab.HoveredCssClass = "tabHover";  
                    newTab.SelectedCssClass = "tabSelected";  
                // Set the first tab as selected.  
                rtsCategoryList.Tabs[0].Selected = true;
