Getting the TabIndex of an active tab for AJAX Tabs tool

Hi,

I was trying to use the AJAX tab control in my C# application. The tabes on this control should show user requests (Pending, Completed etc). Instead of building a separate gridview for each of those, I'd like to get the tabindex in the codebehind and use this value to generate the datagrid for each tab.

1. Is this the most efficient way of doing this? (I have 5 tabs in all).
2. How can I get the tabindex into the codebehind file?

Thanks for all your help!!

To get the active tab you can use
Get_active tab property. How the set active tab is done is outlined in the article below. I guess u can use the get to achieve what u want....

remember to include toolkit:
using AjaxControlToolkit;

then set the active tab from the code behind like this:

TabContainer myTabContainer = (TabContainer)this.FindControl("TabContainer");
TabPanel myTabPanel2 = (TabPanel)myTabContainer.FindControl("Panel2");
myTabContainer.ActiveTab = myTabPanel2;

Where TabContainer is the id of your TabContainer and Panel2 is the id of the panel you want to highlight.
