    Does anyone know if there is a way to use a different template for the Active tab as opposed to the inactive tabs?

    I have a button I want only on the active tab and I don't want it to show on the other tabs. Is there a way to do this? I'm not finding anything in the demo pages or the documentation.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Albert,

    I can suggest you a slight different approach. You could use the PreRender event to loop through the RadTabs collection and manage the visibility of the buttons, which are nested in the disabled tabs. Consider the following approach :

    protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
           for (int i = 0; i < RadTabStrip1.Tabs.Count; i++)
               RadTab tab = RadTabStrip1.Tabs[i];
               Button c = (Button)tab.FindControl("Button1");
               c.Visible = !tab.Enabled;
