create tab from different page

Hi all,

I have a page design using 3 tabs and every tab page has quite heavy functionality so I was wondering whether I could create combine 3 different page and make it looks like tab.

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.


RE: create tab from different page

What are you asking for..?

You have a three tab panel and want to combine them all into a single panel, but still look like its tabbed..?

RE: create tab from different page

Hi Moregelen

What I am asking is since each tab has heavy functionality and by default those 3 tabs should sit in one aspx page and that page would be very heavy.

So I was thinking to make each tab in separate aspx page and it may require postback and not look as flashy as one page using jquery but I don't care...
How do I do this? or can I get the template somewhere...

RE: create tab from different page

I don't actually use Asp.Net when it comes time for me to produce websites so I can't speak with certainty, but I don't think you can do this with asp.net. Instead I think, if you want them to be truly separate pages nested in tabs, that you will have to use some kind of Ajax with the aspx pages embedded that way.

The only other thing I can think of is if each tab really is resource heavy, tie I to the tab change events and only load resources for each tab when they change to it, if that's even possible with asp.net.

I will say this isn't really appropriate for this forum and you might get a better answer in the right forum:
