Ajax TabContainer behaviour like Windows TabControl?

Hi,

I am working on a website where i am creating Horizontal Menus Dynamically
from database as per rights available to the user. I have several
UserControls. And the Menu control also brings UserControl's URL stored in
Database while Page load.

There is a TabContainer control below the Menu Control.

Now i want to add corresponding UserControl dynamically when user clicks on
any MenuItem. also want to load data while UserControl loaded.

Page PostBack is the enemy of all Web Developers... and so is mine..

I don't want to load already added userControls again, everytime the user
clicks any new MenuItem as when menuitem click start postback. The
Application is very much data driven, loading heavy data again and again
would not be the greatway to deal with.

Only the selected usercontrol should be added and it should not effect any
other things on page like Windows TabControl. Think like Windows TabControl
where we can switch between windows and we receive that previous tab in
status we left.

I know it's not at all a easy thing but it is possible..

The thing is when i am clicking any MenuItem ,corresponding TabControl
is getting added in TabContainer but TabContainer due to page Postback is
losing the last added Tab. Means it is showing only the Latest added Tab on
every menuItem click.

Then i tried keeping Menu Control in Update Panel so that whole page will
not refreshed. In this way it's not even adding any UserControl on
TabContainer. It is going with in the Eventhandler but seems to be like
update panel asynchronous postback is not happening. when i debugged this
then i got that everything is null. even UserControl object is also null
which MenuItem click is bringing from server side...

don't know exactly what's happening here..

Please pls pls help me... anyways thanks for all. Guys, waiting for
replies .

the current ms ajax library is not up to this. it counts on the update panel
(which is really a postback approach) for dynamic controls.

look at jquery, as it has the features you need. also the next ms ajax
library (at least the mvc version) is copying the concepts of jquery.

Hi, I have a TabContainer inside a data bound FormView (to logically group the form fields into different tabs). The display part of the data binding works fine, but the Update doesn't. Basically the FormView cannot find the TextBoxes inside the tab container's tab panels. Some of the forums say that it's because of the TabContainer's implementation (by design) of "INamingContainer", and a hack is to take control of the TabContainer's...

I am trying to get to grips with the asp.net ajaxcontrol toolkit, and am trying to add a tabbed control to the page. I have no problems within the aspx file, and can dynamically manipulate a tabcontainer which has 1 panel already, however I want to try create the TabPanels dynamically.

Hello, Can someone help me in this problem. In my content page, I used 2 user controls inside an Ajax Toolkit TabControl. One of the user controls is a data entry with a dropdownlist. The dropdownlist does not retain its selected value when I make a postback (click an update or save button). But when I run it without Tabcontrol, it's ok. Is there anything I should add to the code? Here's the aspx script: <asp:Content ID="Content2"...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
