Adding Web Tabs programmatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1971872355 posted


    I have developed an asp.net 2.0 application for one customer. In it there is a web form with a list of books appearing on an asp.net gridview control. In that gridview, the bookid is a linkbutton, which presently directs you to the book profile page (a simple page with a bookprofile control in it).

    The customer wants to have a number of these book profiles open at the same time, so I have thought about perhaps including my entire web form in a web tab control, and then creating a new tab for each book clicked. When the tab is created, I will load the book profile control onto it. This way the user will have a "OneNote" kind of experience as more tabs are added, and they can easily navigate through them without having to go back and forth  into and out of web forms.

    I have been using the Infragistics UltraWebTab. I created a UltraWebTab on a page and then added the first tab with a button to create new tabs, with the code below in the button's click event handler:

    Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebTab.Tab newTab=new Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebTab.Tab();

    Button closeButton = new Button();

    closeButton.Text = "Close";




    When the code executes, when clicking on the buton to add a new tab, a new tab is created and added. When I select the new tab, I can see the close button there. However, when I click the button, I have no click event fired. I need to know how to capture the event of a newly created control.

    Also, when I add more than one tabs, only the last tab contains the close button; the button disappears from all other tabs.


    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Where is the event handler for the tab?

    I think you need to put event handler for tab? 

    If not then can you please put the whole code with events here.

     Thanks for your reply.  Here's my aspx code first:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

    <%@ Register assembly="Infragistics2.WebUI.UltraWebTab.v8.1, Version=8.1.20081.1000, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7dd5c3163f2cd0cb" namespace="Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebTab" tagprefix="igtab" %>

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <head runat="server">




    <form id="form1" runat="server">



    <igtab:UltraWebTab ID="UltraWebTab1" runat="server">


    <igtab:Tab Text="Main Tab">


    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" onclick="Button1_Click"

    Text="Create new tab" />

    <br />

    <br />

    <asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Close tab" />





    <asp:Label ID="tabIdLabel" runat="server" Text="" Visible="false"></asp:Label>





    Then this is the c# code behind:

    using System;

    using System.Collections.Generic;

    using System.Linq;

    using System.Web;

    using System.Web.UI;

    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page


    public int tabId;

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


    if (!IsPostBack)


    tabIdLabel.Text = "0";



    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


    Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebTab.Tab newTab = new Infragistics.WebUI.UltraWebTab.Tab();

    newTab.Text="New Tab" + tabIdLabel.Text.ToString();

    newTab.Key = newTab.Text;

    tabIdLabel.Text = (Convert.ToInt16(tabIdLabel.Text) + 1).ToString();

    Button closeButton = new Button();

    closeButton.Text = "Close";

    //closeButton.ID = "btnClose";
