Hi,

I have a script that adds tabs (ui/tabs plugin) but I don't have a way to remove them intuitivly. The problem is they are all ajax tabs so I cannot somehow put a button inside them that will call the remove function. Or can I?

How can I let the user click and close an ajax tab from within the tab?

Thank you!!!!!

If the tabset has id="tabs", try something like this:
<button onclick="$('#tabs').tabs('remove',$('#tabs').tabs('option', 'selected'));">Remove</button>

Open in new window

Thank you.

How can I put it inside the tab since in loads the content by ajax?
An idea would be to pass the tabid to the remote page, which it will insert the code into the output. That would require redesigning both the links and the code for the remote page. Is there some more elegant way? Could I somehow run code after the tab has loaed and inject the code in there?

Thank you!!
