you will need to style your tabs accordinly using css, an example is here : http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/uploadfile/raghavau/css-style-sheet-for-ajax-tabcontainer-control-in-Asp-Net-2-0/

Alternativly, you can download the http://ajaxcontroltoolkit.codeplex.com/ ajaxtoolkit controller and get a better idea.

Hope this helps :)

What do you mean by higher? Are you using the ASP.NET AJAX tabs? If so, you'll need to override the current CSS being applied to the tabs. To change the height of the tab, you'll need to set this style in either the <HEAD> of your .aspx page or within a linked *.css document that is loaded onto your page.

I recommend overriding two CSS styles:

.ajax__tab .ajax__tab_tab {
        height:100px;
        margin:0;
        padding:10px 4px;
}

.ajax__tab .ajax__tab_body
{
        position:absolute;
        top:100px; /* here */
        width:205px;
}

This is a complete stylesheet for the tab control.

This is how to make the tab higher, but watch out.  As soon as you do, you may find there are other styles that need to be updated especially if you are using images for the borders of your tabs.  But it did answer my question.
