Not sure whether I should be asking this here or in the JavaScript topic..... But seein' as it's ASP.NET generating the control I'll start off with asking the question here, even though what I'm interested in is what I can do client-side....

I've designed an aspx page with a Tab Strip on it. The problem is that unlike some of the simpler controls like text boxes and buttons and the likes, this Tab Strip is rendered something like this:

<TSNS:TabStrip id="tbDocInfo" tabindex="2" class="DataEntry" onClick="tbDocInfo_Click();" selectedIndex="0" tabDefaultStyle="cursor:default;font-family:Verdana;font-size:11px;color:black;background-color:#a29f96;text-align:center;border-bottom:thin inset silver white;" tabHoverStyle="background-color:#777777;" tabSelectedStyle="cursor:default;font-family:Verdana;font-size:10px;color:black;background-color:buttonface;;border-left:1px outset;border-top:1px outset;border-right:thin outset darkgray white;text-align:center;border-bottom:none;font-weight:bold;" onSelectedIndexChange="JScript:document.AssessmentList.__tbDocInfo_State__.value=event.index" onwcready="JScript:try{document.AssessmentList.__tbDocInfo_State__.value=selectedIndex}catch(e){}" style="height:24px;width:632px;Z-INDEX: 112; LEFT: 8px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 64px">

      <TSNS:Tab ID="DocInfoTab" defaultStyle="width:35%;">Document Information</TSNS:Tab>
      <TSNS:Tab ID="CaseStageTab" defaultStyle="width:35%;">Case Stages</TSNS:Tab>
      <TSNS:Tab ID="ReportTab" defaultStyle="width:30%;">Report</TSNS:Tab>


All very well and good, but as a result you can't for example go and get document.all.tbDocInfo and then look at its child nodes in order to do something to one of the tabs - just to name one thing one might like to do client-side.

Is there any way around this. My suspicion is that maybe I could achieve more if I were to use the Namespace correctly? But I'm not sure how.....

Thanks for your help
