Hi,

We used to be able to use the following script to change the validation group each time a user clicks another tab:

function UpdateValidationGroup()
 {
  var tabStrip = <%=RadTabStrip1.ClientID%>;
  tabStrip.ValidationGroup = tabStrip.SelectedTab.Value;
 }

</script>

Currently our company is in the process of buying asp.net ajax 2009 Q1 controls and it seems that the script does not apply anymore.
Can you please help?
We have a tabstrip with four tabs. Each one with it's corresponding pageview with a set of controls. We would like to make each tab validate separately (for which we assigned a different validation group, and even a differente validation summary)
We set Radtabstrip has causesValidation=true

What are we missing here?

Hi Andreia,

The above given client side code will work only with RadTabStrip for asp.net. Now since you are using RadTabStrip for asp.net AJAX you need modify the client side code as shown below.

JS:
 
<script type="text/javascript" > 
 function UpdateValidationGroup() 
 { 
  var tabStrip = $find("<%= RadTabStrip1.ClientID %>"); 
  var selectedTab=tabStrip.get_selectedTab();  
  if(selectedTab!=null
   tabStrip.ValidationGroup= selectedTab.get_value(); 
  
 } 
</script> 


Thanks
Princy

Thanks for your feedback.
Regarding the compatibility with firefox. I can't make it work. When I click a tab in firefox it does not change tab even when no validation problems exist.
I already tried with some sample (and simple) code supplied on your demos and it does not work in firefox.
It just adds a # to my url!? This is strange! Can you help?
Thanks, A. Oliveira

After cleaning all the code (removing controls), step by step, I found out that radtabstrip does not work very well with a third party calendar control (RJS.Web.WebControl.PopCalendar). I will most probably start using rad date picker instead.

Hi Princy,

Could you please tell me how to use this client script ?

I managed to change ValidationGroup on PostBack but not on client side.
I tried this :
<telerik:RadTabStrip ID="RadTabStrip1" ValidationGroup="GeneralInformationValidation"  
OnClientTabSelected="UpdateValidationGroup()"
MultiPageID="RadMultiPage" runat="server"

But "tabStrip" is null in client side function.
Does "$find()" method need something that I'm missing ?

On PostBack I do :
protected void RadTabStrip1_TabClick(object sender, RadTabStripEventArgs e) 
        { 
            Page.Validate(RadTabStrip1.ValidationGroup); 
            if (Page.IsValid) 
                RadTabStrip1.ValidationGroup = e.Tab.Value; 
        } 

Thanks,

Thibaut

I am using 2010.2.713.40 and have added this script:
<script type="text/javascript" >  
 function UpdateValidationGroup()  
 {  
  var tabStrip = $find("<%= MyRadTabStrip.ClientID %>");  
  var selectedTab=tabStrip.get_selectedTab();   
  if(selectedTab!=null)  
   tabStrip.ValidationGroup= selectedTab.get_value();  
     
 }  
</script

However, when this runs, tabStrip is null and so the 2nd line throws a javascript exception.
What could be wrong?
Thanks.

Hi Craig,

Since you're attaching a handler to the OnClientTabSelected event the first argument sent to the function will be the TabStrip instance itself:

<script type="text/javascript" 
 function UpdateValidationGroup(tabStrip, eventArgs) 
 
  var selectedTab=tabStrip.get_selectedTab();  
  if(selectedTab!=null
   tabStrip.ValidationGroup= selectedTab.get_value(); 
      
 
</script>

I hope this helps.

All the best,

Hi Tsvetomir,

selectedTab.get_value() returns null.  Should this be

 

selectedTab.get_text() instead?

Thanks.

Hi Craig Wallace,

If you want to validate against Tabs' text, then you can use get_text(). Otherwise, please make sure that Items have values, so that the script does not return null.

Kind regards,
