I'm using a Bootstrap NAV panel with NAV panes and I have a 2 part question:

1. How can I set the active tab-pane from VB code behind?

2. When my page loads, I see the 3 tabs and the 1st tab is active, but the contents of the tab are not seen until I click on the 2nd or 3rd tab??

Code is attached:
 <link href="Content/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="Scripts/jquery-2.1.3.js"></script>
    <script src="Scripts/bootstrap.js"></script>

    <div class="container">
        <div class="panel panel-info">
            <div class="panel-heading">
                <ul class="nav nav-tabs">
                    <li class="nav active"><a href="#A" data-toggle="tab">Tab A</a></li>
                    <li class="nav"><a href="#B" data-toggle="tab">Tab B</a></li>
                    <li class="nav"><a href="#C" data-toggle="tab">Tab C</a></li>
                </ul>
            </div>
            <div class="panel-body">
                <!-- Tab panes -->
                <div class="tab-content">
                    <div class="tab-pane fade" id="A">Content inside tab A</div>
                    <div class="tab-pane fade" id="B">Content inside tab B</div>
                    <div class="tab-pane fade" id="C">Content inside tab C</div>
                </div>
            </div>
            </div>
    </div>

What type of web site are you using?  The Bootstrap navbar is not an ASP.NET component, per se, but you could make one that has server-side properties, and could generate the HTML that you need.

It's a fairly standard website using ASPX pages, I use the bootstrap css for a standard look & feel and the nav-tabs works perfectly for me.

I did actually manage to find a pretty simple solution which I've copied here for anyone else looking to do the same thing.

  Dim SB As New StringBuilder
        SB.Append("$(document).ready(function(){ ")
        SB.Append("$('#myTab li:eq(" & tabNum & ") a').tab('show');")
        SB.Append("});")

        ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, Me.GetType(), "ShowCollapse", SB.ToString, True)

Hello, I'm looking to do the same but I don't quite follow your solution.  Would you mind sharing all of the ASPX and the code behind?
