I had this working in 1.7 version and now it is not.  I am hoping someone could help me out in how I get this done.

Basically I want to have all my tabs point to live web page links (not hidden panels)

below is how my old code works... Basically the Selected part of the tab is alwyas dynamically set.  Whatever that is set too the tab will match.  So I make the selected Tab href ="#<Name>" and then the other tabs href are actual links to webpages.

My links are valid I have cut and pasted them into abother browser window and they do work.

But every time I click on a tab which has a page link it now gives the url with "/undefined" added to the end.

So for example www.me.com/admin/undefined which isn't correct.

        <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
        	// Tabs
            $("#tabs").tabs({
                select: function (event, ui) {
                    try {
                        window.location = $.data(ui.tab, 'href.tabs');
                    }
                    catch (err) {
                    //just ignore it.  For now..
                    }
                    return false;
                }
                , selected: 0
            });
 
        });
    </script>
<div id="tabs">
     <UL>
         <LI><a href="#details">Details</LI>
         <LI><a href="charges.aspx">Charges</LI>
         <LI><a href="History.aspx">History</LI>
     </UL>

</div>

Open in new window



How can I get this to work... I am under a crunch... otherwise I would go through and figure it out...

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

For those who might be looking I figured it out...

window.location = $.data(ui.tab, 'href.tabs');

Changes to
window.location = ui.tab.href;

That will work, or at least it does now for me...
