I'm now looking for/at tab controls that support ajax calls. The few that
I've found are pretty static in that you can assign tab "A" to a specific
AJAX request but you have no ability to dynamically create/destroy tabs.
Think of the problem like this: you have a list of items (kits) and you
want to view the contents of one of these kits so you click on the kit name
and a user would expect a new tab to open and the contents of the kit to be
displayed. The contents of the new tab will be a list of parts. Users will
want to have more than one kit open at a time and, obviously, you don't
want to download the contents of 10,000 kits.
Another, simplier example might be like an inbox that list your emails and
when you want to view one you click it and a new tab opens displaying the
contents of the email.
I found a great implementation by Rolan Franssen located here:
and you can easily assign ajax calls to tabs, dynamically create / delete
tabs etc. which is perfect for what I need except for one small, seemingly
simple thing... I can't figure out how to get it to create a tab AND load
the content via an ajax request and his code is a little out of my league.
Does anyone know of a good tab control that can do this or has anyone
modified Rolands code to do this?
P.S. http://scripteka.com/ seems broken just like Walters scroll bars
were... using ie9, you can't scroll the widgets list down.
