Last Modified: 2020-08-28
I have an index page with 4 tabs.  On the fourth tab I have a link that brings me to another page(page B). On page B I would like a link or a button that brings me back to the index page with the third tab active.  How can I do that? Possibly with code that goes in page B view.  Thank you.
This is the code I have in Index:

ul class="nav nav-tabs">
    <li class="active"><a data-toggle="tab" href="#firstTab">View All</a></li>
    <li><a data-toggle="tab" href="#secondTab">Add New</a></li>
    <li><a data-toggle="tab" href="#thirdTab">Closed Tickets</a></li>
    <li><a data-toggle="tab" href="#fourthTab">IT Tasks</a></li>
    @*<li><a data-toggle="tab" href="#fifthTab">Knowledge</a></li>*@

<div class="tab-content">
    <div id="firstTab" class="tab-pane fade in active">@Html.Action("ViewAll")</div>
    <div id="secondTab" class="tab-pane fade in">@Html.Action("AddOrEdit")</div>
    @*<div id="secondTab" class="tab-pane fade in">@Html.Action("EditOneRecord")</div>*@
    <div id="thirdTab" class="tab-pane fade in">@Html.Action("ViewAllKnowledge")</div>
    <div id="fourthTab" class="tab-pane fade in">@Html.Action("ViewAllTasks")</div>
    @*<div id="fifthTab" class="tab-pane fade in">@Html.Action("ViewAllKnowledgeRealOne")</div>*@
