UPDATED: AJAX FAQ? And: How to Style the AJAX tab control's tabs: complete information
UPDATE April 08, 2009: for the latest version of this post, with up-to-date info on styling the Tab control, see my just updated Blog post -- the info below is somewhat outdated and does not have some additional details I have added to the Blog post.
First of all, I would like to suggest that the AJAX section of the ASP.NET forums have its own FAQ section. I was going to post this in the general ASP.NET FAQ, but it didn't really fit, and there was no AJAX FAQ, so I'm posting it here.
Next: I have been looking for details on how to style the Tabs in the AJAX Tool...Ajax Tab Control inserting content from the preceding tab into the tab of focus
I am using a tab control with several tabs. In one of the tabs, I was attempting to cause a label and a dropdownlist control to become visible or invisible based upon the users selection on another dropdownlist control within the same tab. When I test the control that should make the label and the ddl visible or invisible it does succeed in displaying or hiding these two controls but the contents from the preceding tab container viewed is injected into each page of the tab control. If I navigate to the tab containing the contents being injected then to any of the other tabs previous...TargetControlID of AJAX Calendar Control cannot be found when in an AJAX tab control

...AJAX Tab Control
Hello everyone -
I've searched the archives and Googled this to death, but I'm not finding a satisfactory answer at the moment - any advice you have would be much appreciated.
I have a "standard" aspx page with the AJAX Control Toolkit Tab control on - 3 tabs. Most of the time it is perfect and works fine, but sometimes for no obvious reason it will just stop rendering the tab, and just the text still appears. Instead of the pretty tabs, you just get the 3 labels rammed together, so my three tabs (Team Management, Incident Log, Progress) render like this:

I have 6 different pages, each loading in a different tab of an ajax tab container. I have written my page in a way that on click on each tab, its related page is being loaded using update panel. The problem is this imposes a delay when user clicks and wants to move from tab to tab. On the other hand, I can change the page that all pages and contents get loaded and then be displayed as tabbed page. But in that case, it takes to long for all of them to be loaded at the same time. Waht I need is something in between. I want them to start loadning, first tab loads and user can work wit...How do we customize Ajax calendar Control and Ajax Tabbed Panel?

Not too sure if this is covered else where? Does the Ajax Tab control have a display on demand method?
I want to display customer details on an Ajax Tab UI, I could do this with a custom tab but would like to use the MS Ajax framework where possible.
The tabs need to include the following:

Summary: TABS, TABS, AND MORE TABS.
Why is it that EVERYTIME I get a new upgrade whether on Firefox or
Thunderbird, I get TABS? I now have an upgrade on Thunderbird and
guess what, I have an 'Inbox' TAB that i don't know how to get rid of.
Another issue is. Why doesn't Firefox display something telling me it
is working/looking for the site I want. I click on a site and stare at
Firefox and don't know if it is doing anything. The previous versions
were much better at this.

I would like to have one grid in all tabs and the tabs will be used for changing sort order only. For example:
Tabs: Ads By City, Ads By Date, Ads By Seller etc
It would be waste of resources (the page will be heavy) to have grid in each tab. Rather there should be one grid and tab should have onclick event to handle adding filtering... How to acomplish this?

I am trying to get the Tab Container working. I have spent the past 3 days going through each and every post online and right now I am writing this as a last resort.
I do not want any postback.
I have a container with two tabs. I have a few text boxes, labels and one calendar extender in each tab and all I do in each tab is collect user information depending on the user type. When I run the code, only one tab shows up with all of its contents.This is the tab with the ActiveTabIndex="0". The other tab shows none of its controls when selected - only the header text.
I would like the contents of the second tab to show as well, so that I can collect different set of information from the user in each tab.
Keep it simple. Firstly, I recommend installing the AjaxControlToolkit sample website. If you can run the site, and the TabControl works, you have a starting point. If it doesn't, then you probably need to provide more information about your environment. What version of .Net, AjaxControlToolkit? What browser are you testing in?
Incrementally build a more complex page... drag a TabControl on, then drag a TextBox into each tab. Test
Keep adding more controls to each tab and keep testing.
As for No postback, drop an <asp:UpdatePanel in each Tab.
Hope that helps

If you just have a reference to the AjaxControlToolkit.dll - you just need to delete it and reference the latest version.
If you have a project reference, you'll need to make sure the project is the version you want and rebuild it. You'll also be able to see if the folder for Tabs is there - it should be as I believe it was in ...AJAX Tab control.
Does any one know or has an example of how to use AJAX tab control which each tab is using in a separate page.aspx but data can pass thru from one tab to the other?
Thanks so much.
i don't think that's possible, because in order for the tab control to load it's own separate .aspx pages, you'd have to load them into an iframe defined within each tab. with doing it this way, I'm fairly certain passing data between the tabs won't work, because inhernently the iframes are almost like having x number of browser windows open.
