Hello.

Please tell me what is wrong here:

$("#featured > ul").bind("tabsselect", function(event, ui) {
  	selectedTab =$("#featured > ul").tabs().data("selected.tabs");
	alert (ui.index);
)}

Open in new window


ui.index is undefined. I need that for click event.

Please Help.

if ui is the element that is clicked, you can replace it with

alert($(this).index());

okay, tell me one thing

$("#featured > ul").bind("tabsselect", function(event, ui) {
        //selectedTab =$("#featured > ul").tabs().data("selected.tabs");
      //alert (ui.index);
     alert($(this).html());
)}

when you select tab, does this alert the correct tab?

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

this is what I get on any tab:

            
 <li class="ui-tabs-nav-item ui-tabs-selected" id="nav-fragment-1"><div class="spatiu1"><a href="#fragment-1"><img src="images/gol.gif" alt="" height="100" width="138"></a></div></li>
	        <li class="ui-tabs-nav-item" id="nav-fragment-2"><div class="spatiu2"><a href="#fragment-2"><img src="images/gol.gif" alt="" height="100" width="138"></a></div></li>
	        <li class="ui-tabs-nav-item" id="nav-fragment-3"><div class="spatiu3"><a href="#fragment-3"><img src="images/gol.gif" alt="" height="100" width="138"></a></div></li>
	        <li class="ui-tabs-nav-item" id="nav-fragment-4"><div class="spatiu4"><a href="#fragment-4"><img src="images/gol.gif" alt="" height="100" width="138"></a></div></li>
            <li class="ui-tabs-nav-item" id="nav-fragment-5"><div class="spatiu5"><a href="#fragment-5"><img src="images/gol.gif" alt="" height="100" width="138"></a></div></li>

This is what alert($(this).html()) is doing.

why don't you simply do

alert($(".ui-tabs-selected").index());

since by now you know which one is selected, because .ui-tabs-selected class is attached to it

hmmm.

alert($(".ui-tabs-selected").index()); is always -1.

even if you select some other tab also?

In that case, whatever plugin you are using, is not assigning the class properly

i did it in other way:

var mycheckedtab=setInterval("checktabs()",200);

function checktabs(){
	if ($("#nav-fragment-2").hasClass("ui-tabs-selected")){
		$("#fragmentelemele-1").show();
		$("#fragmentelemele-2").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-3").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-4").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-5").hide();	
	}
	
	if ($("#nav-fragment-3").hasClass("ui-tabs-selected")){
		$("#fragmentelemele-1").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-2").show();
		$("#fragmentelemele-3").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-4").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-5").hide();	
	}
	
	if ($("#nav-fragment-4").hasClass("ui-tabs-selected")){
		$("#fragmentelemele-1").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-2").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-3").show();
		$("#fragmentelemele-4").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-5").hide();	
	}
	
	if ($("#nav-fragment-5").hasClass("ui-tabs-selected")){
		$("#fragmentelemele-1").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-2").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-3").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-4").show();
		$("#fragmentelemele-5").hide();	
	}
	if ($("#nav-fragment-1").hasClass("ui-tabs-selected")){
		$("#fragmentelemele-1").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-2").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-3").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-4").hide();
		$("#fragmentelemele-5").show();	
	}
	}

Thanks for suggestion gurvinder372.

I think it is something wrong with jQuery UI.
I am using 1.3.2 version.
