Hi I have two TABs defined as:

                        <li><a href="#tabs-1">Select Category</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#tabs-2">Now Select Sub Category</a></li>

In #tabs-1 I have a form that submits to #tabs-2, When the form button in tab-1 is clicked I would like tab-2 to become active, the closest code is below:

var $tabs = $('#example').tabs(); // first tab selected

$('#my-text-link').click(function() { // bind click event to link
    $tabs.tabs('select', 2); // switch to third tab
    return false;
