Ajax Tab control within formview

I had many fields within a formview.  I was able to use the same name for the textboxs, labels, etc in my edit template, insert template, item template.  

Now I would like to use a tab control within the formview.  I need a tab control in each template (edit, item, insert).  However, it won't let me create controls with the same name.  For instance, in the edit, item and insert form templates I want a field called "txtEmployee" in a tab panel in a tab control.  It says a definition already exists for txtEmployee.   Is there a way to do this?

You would have to get each Tab control a unique ID.

I have attached my code below.  I gave the tab control a unique ID but it still doesn't work.

     <%-- In edittemplate--%>
            <cc1:TabContainer ID="TabContainer3" runat="server">
                <cc1:TabPanel runat="server" ID="TabPanel1" HeaderText="Employee">
                    <ContentTemplate>
                        <div class="ExpenseGroup">
                            <asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server">
                                <div class="body">
                                    <div class="content">
                                        <div class="row">
                                            <span class="labelcolumn">Employee:</span> <span class="column">
                                                <asp:TextBox ID="txtEmployee" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Employee") %>' SkinID="txtNumberField" /></span>
                                        </div>
                                    </div>

                </cc1:TabPanel>
            </cc1:TabContainer>

"but is still doesn't work" doesn't explain why it didn't work.  Please try to be as specific as you can about your current situation.

You said you have the Tab control unique IDs, but the exception is that the TextBox controls have the same ID.  No control can have the same ID.
