Hello,
I have a jquery ui tabs loading content via ajax :
<ul>
<li><a href='x1.html' id='tab-a'>bla bla bla</a></li>
<li><a href='x1.html' id='tab-b'>bla bla bla</a></li>
</ul>
I need to get the id (so tab-a or tab-b) of the selected tab. I can get the text with :

$('#tabs').bind('tabsselect', function(event, ui) {
var tab_id = $(ui.tab).text();
alert(tab_id);

but I need the id (not the index)

Thanks for help

use : $(ui.tab).closest("li").attr("id")

$('#tabs').bind('tabsselect', function(event, ui) {
var tab_id = $(ui.tab).closest("li").attr("id");
alert(tab_id);

Hi,
Thanks a lot, it does work ! (I just had to put the id in the <li> and not the <href> but this is fine.

my bad, should work too :

with ID on the link :

$('#tabs').bind('tabsselect', function(event, ui) {
var tab_id = $(ui.tab).attr("id"); // or var tab_id = ui.tab.id
alert(tab_id);
