Hello,
We need to open a new jquery tab programmatically when submitting a form :
Let's say we have tab-1 with a form inside. When we submit the form, a new tab opens, tab-2, with the result of the form. Both tab-1 and tab-2 are loaded in ajax, so we kind of need to "convert" :
append(data).tabs('add', curLink, curName)
to a submit
Is it possible ?

$("#tab1 form").submit(function(evt) { // when submitting form in tab1
    evt.preventDefault(); // needed to prevent submit of the form and reload/change page
    $.post("/path/to/server/page.ext", $(this).serializeArray(), function(resultOfTheForm) { // assuming form use POST else replace by $.get
           $("#tab-2 div.content").html( resultOfTheForm ); // fill tab2 with result
           $( "#tabs" ).tabs( "option", "active", 2 ); // set tab 2 active
    });
});
