Asp.Net AJAX dynamically added Tab Control not displaying

P: n/a
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. I followed the advice here:

http://www.asp.net/learn/ajax-videos/video-156.aspx (3rd comment - Joe
Stagner)

I am finding that the container is hidden.

I have found that I can work around this by creating the first tab within
the aspx, then performing RemoveAt(0) to remove that tab when I've added the
others. This works, but is not ideal as I can't add the original container
dynamically. Is there another way to do this, and what is the reason for
this behaviour?
Thanks,
Richard

Hi Richard,

Please try to use Page_PreInit instead of Page_Init.

The OnInit of TabContainer fires earlier than the Page_Init. Thus, if we
add controls in the Page_Init the TabPanels will not be shown.

Please have a look at the source code of the TabContainer control:
protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{
base.OnInit(e);
this.Page.RegisterRequiresControlState(this);
this._initialized = true;
if (this._cachedActiveTabIndex -1)
{
this.ActiveTabIndex = this._cachedActiveTabIndex;
}
else if (this.Tabs.Count 0)
{
this.ActiveTabIndex = 0;
}
}

We can see if there's no tabs added in the TabContainer the ActiveTabIndex
will not be assigned 0. And The default value of the ActiveTabIndex is -1.
On the render stage, TabContainer will check the ActiveTabIndex. If it's -1
then definitely no tab will be shown.

Please have a try and let me know if it works.

Allen Chen

P: n/a
Allen thanks again,

I am slowly getting to grips with the lifecycle, but would never have picked
this up. I do actually have the source for the ajaxtoolkit, but if I had
just downloaded the dlls then is trying each of the delegate methods for the
lifecycle the only way that I could have established this? or is the mere
presence of the OnInit override an indication that content should be added
PreInit.

I assume however that it is also true, some actions cannot be taken until
after a lifecycle event has occured, though I would appreciate it if you
could point me at some decumentation with examples which illustrates this
point.

My final aim is to add the control within the Accordion custom control that
you helped me with previously. I have tried to do this today, by including a
tab panel within the ContentUserControl. Although I have the Accordion
control constructed at Page_PreInit within the aspx file, the Tabbed Panels
within the TabContainer within the CustomUserCOntrol are not being added.

What is happening in this case? My code extracts are below.

If you can recomend some documents/books which I can read around the subject
of page life cycle I would appreciate it. Although I think I understand the
stages of the lifecyle, I don't seem to have a full understanding of the
lifecyle where custom/user controls are involved.

Thanks,
Richard

Hi Richard,

This issue, as I said, is due to the sequence of the execution of the code.
I'll try to rephrase.

protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
{
base.OnInit(e);
this.Page.RegisterRequiresControlState(this);
this._initialized = true;
if (this._cachedActiveTabIndex -1)
{
this.ActiveTabIndex = this._cachedActiveTabIndex;
}
else if (this.Tabs.Count 0)
{
this.ActiveTabIndex = 0;
}
}

Please pay attention to following code:
else if (this.Tabs.Count 0)
{
this.ActiveTabIndex = 0;
}

It means if there's no tab added in the TabContainer this.ActiveTabIndex=0
will not be executed. It's reasonable. However, the Init of the Controls
that are added in the aspx fires earlier than the Page's Init. So the
result is, the TabContainer's ActiveTabIndex is -1 (it's default value that
is set in its constructor method). Then the code to add the TabPanels fires
(but it DOES NOT change the ActiveTabIndex of TabContainer). On the render
stage, the TabPanel checks the ActiveTabIndex. Since it's now -1 the
TabPanel assumes there's no active tab and it hides all the tabs at client
side.
So, to solve this issue, we have two options, obviously:

1. As I mentioned, add the TabPanels on an earlier stage than the
TabContainer's Init. The Page's PreInit is probably a good choice.

2. Set the ActiveTabIndex manually after the TabPanel has been added
(following sample is for the code in your first post):
protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
this.tc2.ActiveTabIndex = 0; //Manually set the active tab index.
}

protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)//Or just use
Page_PreInit so that we don't have to manually set the active tab index.

{

this.tc1.Tabs[0].Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("I can add content to an
existing panel"));

TabPanel panel = new TabPanel();

panel.HeaderText = "tab2";

panel.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("I can even add a new panel to a
container which already has a panel"));

this.tc1.Tabs.Add(panel);

TabPanel[] newpanels = new TabPanel[3];

for (int iCnt = 0; iCnt < 3; iCnt++)

{

newpanels[iCnt] = new TabPanel();

newpanels[iCnt].HeaderText = String.Concat("New Panel" + iCnt);

newpanels[iCnt].Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("But I can't add new
panels"));

this.tc2.Tabs.Add(newpanels[iCnt]);

}
}

As to your current scenario I think you can use the second option because
you're using the usercontrol and it'll generally involve some page life
cycle issues if we choose the event incautiously.

I understand you want to learn more about the page life cycle. But I
haven't found any book that is targeted to this topic.

I would like to tell you how I learn the page life cycle myself. Basically
I have two options:

1. Use the Reflector:
http://www.red-gate.com/products/reflector/index.htm
This response contains a reference to a third party World Wide Web site.
Microsoft is providing this information as a convenience to you. Microsoft
does not control these sites and has not tested any software or information
found on these sites; therefore, Microsoft cannot make any representations
regarding the quality, safety, or suitability of any software or
information found there. There are inherent dangers in the use of any
software found on the Internet, and Microsoft cautions you to make sure
that you completely understand the risk before retrieving any software from
the Internet.

Open the reflector, find the Page class and it's method:

private void ProcessRequestMain(bool includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, bool
includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

Then you can go on your way to track the page life cycle.

2. Debug the ASP.NET source code:
http://blogs.msdn.com/sburke/archive...sual-studio-to
-debug-net-framework-source-code.aspx

The advantage of this option is, we can set breakpoints.

In addition, there's a Page Life Cycle methods list in this documentation:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...81(VS.80).aspx

Please have a try and let me know if you need further assistance. If it
still doesn't work please send a demo project to me. My email is

| Allen thanks again,
|
| I am slowly getting to grips with the lifecycle, but would never have
picked
| this up. I do actually have the source for the ajaxtoolkit, but if I had
| just downloaded the dlls then is trying each of the delegate methods for
the
| lifecycle the only way that I could have established this? or is the mere
| presence of the OnInit override an indication that content should be
added
| PreInit.
|
| I assume however that it is also true, some actions cannot be taken until
| after a lifecycle event has occured, though I would appreciate it if you
| could point me at some decumentation with examples which illustrates this
| point.
|
| My final aim is to add the control within the Accordion custom control
that
| you helped me with previously. I have tried to do this today, by
including a
| tab panel within the ContentUserControl. Although I have the Accordion
| control constructed at Page_PreInit within the aspx file, the Tabbed
Panels
| within the TabContainer within the CustomUserCOntrol are not being added.
|
| What is happening in this case? My code extracts are below.
|
| If you can recomend some documents/books which I can read around the
subject
| of page life cycle I would appreciate it. Although I think I understand
the
| stages of the lifecyle, I don't seem to have a full understanding of the
| lifecyle where custom/user controls are involved.

P: n/a
Allen,

It hasn't solved the problem, as I had already moved the code to
Page_PreInit, but hadn't had time to think it through fully and recheck my
work . If I need to I'll then put together an example with a couple of
scenarios which are and are not working as I would expect.

I'll probably manage to do this tomorrow and email them to you as you
suggested, or update this post if I find that it works.

Either way, I think that the tips for looking at the lifecycle will be
useful, and I have found some useful references to basic lifecyle in various
books.

Thanks, Richard

| Allen thanks again,
|
| I am slowly getting to grips with the lifecycle, but would never have
picked
| this up. I do actually have the source for the ajaxtoolkit, but if I had
| just downloaded the dlls then is trying each of the delegate methods for
the
| lifecycle the only way that I could have established this? or is the
mere
| presence of the OnInit override an indication that content should be
added
| PreInit.
|
| I assume however that it is also true, some actions cannot be taken
until
| after a lifecycle event has occured, though I would appreciate it if you
| could point me at some decumentation with examples which illustrates
this
| point.
|
| My final aim is to add the control within the Accordion custom control
that
| you helped me with previously. I have tried to do this today, by
including a
| tab panel within the ContentUserControl. Although I have the Accordion
| control constructed at Page_PreInit within the aspx file, the Tabbed
Panels
| within the TabContainer within the CustomUserCOntrol are not being
added.
|
| What is happening in this case? My code extracts are below.
|
| If you can recomend some documents/books which I can read around the
subject
| of page life cycle I would appreciate it. Although I think I understand
the
| stages of the lifecyle, I don't seem to have a full understanding of the
| lifecyle where custom/user controls are involved.

| Hi Richard,
| >
| Please try to use Page_PreInit instead of Page_Init.
| >
| The OnInit of TabContainer fires earlier than the Page_Init. Thus, if
we
| add controls in the Page_Init the TabPanels will not be shown.
| >
| Please have a look at the source code of the TabContainer control:
| protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
| {
| base.OnInit(e);
| this.Page.RegisterRequiresControlState(this);
| this._initialized = true;
| if (this._cachedActiveTabIndex -1)
| {
| this.ActiveTabIndex = this._cachedActiveTabIndex;
| }
| else if (this.Tabs.Count 0)
| {
| this.ActiveTabIndex = 0;
| }
| }
| >
| We can see if there's no tabs added in the TabContainer the
ActiveTabIndex
| will not be assigned 0. And The default value of the ActiveTabIndex is
-1.
| On the render stage, TabContainer will check the ActiveTabIndex. If
| it's -1
| then definitely no tab will be shown.

| Please have a try and let me know if it works.

| |
| | 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. I followed the advice here:
| |
| | http://www.asp.net/learn/ajax-videos/video-156.aspx (3rd comment -
Joe
| | Stagner)
| |
| | I am finding that the container is hidden.
| |
| | I have found that I can work around this by creating the first tab
| within
| | the aspx, then performing RemoveAt(0) to remove that tab when I've
added
| the
| | others. This works, but is not ideal as I can't add the original
| container
| | dynamically. Is there another way to do this, and what is the reason
for
| | this behaviour?

P: n/a
Allen,

Thanks for your help. I have worked through a few different configurations
this morning in an example app and all have worked fine whilst building the
Page at
PreInit.

When I've tried to incorporate in my actual App I am still having some
issues, though now that I know that I can create the correct form, I'm sure
that I can find where the problem lies and solve it.

Many thanks for your help.

Richard

| |
| | I am finding that the container is hidden.
| |
| | I have found that I can work around this by creating the first tab
| within
| | the aspx, then performing RemoveAt(0) to remove that tab when I've
added

| Allen,
|
| Thanks for your help. I have worked through a few different configurations
| this morning in an example app and all have worked fine whilst building
the
| Page at
| PreInit.
|
| When I've tried to incorporate in my actual App I am still having some
| issues, though now that I know that I can create the correct form, I'm
sure
| that I can find where the problem lies and solve it.
|
| Many thanks for your help.
|
| Richard

| |
| | Allen thanks again,
| |
| | I am slowly getting to grips with the lifecycle, but would never have
| picked
| | this up. I do actually have the source for the ajaxtoolkit, but if I
had
| | just downloaded the dlls then is trying each of the delegate methods
for
| the
| | lifecycle the only way that I could have established this? or is the
| mere
| | presence of the OnInit override an indication that content should be
| added
| | PreInit.
| |
| | I assume however that it is also true, some actions cannot be taken
| until
| | after a lifecycle event has occured, though I would appreciate it if
you
| | could point me at some decumentation with examples which illustrates
| this
| | point.
| |
| | My final aim is to add the control within the Accordion custom control
| that
| | you helped me with previously. I have tried to do this today, by
| including a
| | tab panel within the ContentUserControl. Although I have the Accordion
| | control constructed at Page_PreInit within the aspx file, the Tabbed
| Panels
| | within the TabContainer within the CustomUserCOntrol are not being
| added.
| |
| | What is happening in this case? My code extracts are below.
| |
| | If you can recomend some documents/books which I can read around the
| subject
| | of page life cycle I would appreciate it. Although I think I
understand
| the
| | stages of the lifecyle, I don't seem to have a full understanding of
the
| | lifecyle where custom/user controls are involved.
| |
| | Thanks,
| | Richard
