Greetings everyone:

I found the following scripts from the net. It is used to build tabbed pages.

My question is that I would like to use "sub-tabs" within each tab-page. Can this be done ?

If yes, can someone please give me an example of how to do this?

here is the current code that builds tabbed pages.
<!--#INCLUDE file= "../TabControl/TabControl.asp"-->
<%
'See if the default tab is passed to us
DefaultTab = Request.QueryString("Tab")
if DefaultTab = "" then
	DefaultTab = 2
else
	DefaultTab = cint(DefaultTab)
end if
 
' Declare and create our TabControl Object in memory
Dim MyTabControl, DefaultTab
Set MyTabControl = New TabControl
MyTabControl.TabType = TabTypeDynamic
MyTabControl.TabSelected = DefaultTab
MyTabControl.ControlImagePath = "../tabcontrol/"
MyTabControl.ControlScriptPath = "../tabcontrol/"
MyTabControl.TabWidth = "100"
MyTabControl.Width = "90%"
MyTabControl.Height = "800"
MyTabControl.OnClick = "countClicks('{0}');"
'We will just use the default value for the below properties
'MyTabControl.BGColor = "#F7F7F8"
%>
<head>
	<title>tabbed pages</title>
</head>
<script language="javascript">
var intClicks = 0;
 
function countClicks(strIndex) {
	intClicks +=1;
	document.getElementById("ClickCounter").innerHTML = intClicks +" (tab="+ strIndex +")";
}
</script>
<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" rightmargin="0">
<br>
	<center>
	<%
	'Add Tabs
	MyTabControl.AddTab "INTAKE","icon_company.gif","tab1"
	MyTabControl.AddTab "SUP","icon_user.gif","tab2"
	MyTabControl.AddTab "PARTNERS","icon_activity.gif","tab3"
	MyTabControl.AddTab "ADMIN","admin_icon.png","tab4"
	MyTabControl.AddTab "REPORTS","reportEx.gif","tab5"
	MyTabControl.AddTab "SEARCH","icon_search.gif","tab6"
	MyTabControl.AddTab "LOGOUT","logout.png","tab7"
 
	'Draw Tab Control
	MyTabControl.Draw
 
	'Add your content to div's which have the corresponding tab id as passed to AddTab
	%>
	<div id='tab1'>
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab1.asp"-->
	</div>
	<div class=TabContent id="tab2">
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab2.asp"-->
	</div>
	<div id="tab3">
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab3.asp"-->
	</div>
	<div id='tab4'>
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab4.asp"-->
	</div>
	<div class=TabContent id="tab5">
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab5.asp"-->
	</div>
	<div id="tab6">
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab6.asp"-->
	</div>
	<div id='tab7'>
	<!--#INCLUDE FILE="tab_tab7.asp"-->
	</div>
 
	<font face='arial' size='2'>Optional tab width is set to make the tabs the same size and OnClick event used in this demo.<br>
	OnClick event counter: <span id="ClickCounter">0</span>
	</font>
	</center>
</body>
</html>

Well,

For me,it is hard to use that example to write mine when even the example they gave doesn't work, and I am not talking about the broken link.

I have gobbled together the example shown on that page and it doesn't even show on the screen.
