Asked On January 6, 2017 09:31 PM UTC

I am trying to create a tab control where the tab pages will be enabled/disabled via buttons, and navigation between the tab pages will be by using Next and Previous buttons, as well as Close button, but unable to do so.  I also seem unable to render a Button in one of my. cshtml files (Views/Tab/QuickListTabContent.cshtml).
Please help (see my prototype attached),
Marina

Hi Marina Brukhovetsky,        
   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.   
   
Please find the details in the following table.  
   
   
Query   
Response   
I am trying to create a tab control where the tab pages will be enabled/disabled via buttons, and navigation between the tab pages will be by using Next and Previous buttons, as well as Close button, but unable to do so.    
Your shared sample is not working at our end. So, we have prepared a sample based on your shared sample code.    
You can write the same client side event for previous and next buttons within the Tab control.   
   
Please find the below code snippet:   
<code>   
function PartsNext(e)   
       {   
           
           var tabObj = $("#StaticTab").data("ejTab");   
           var selectedTab = 0;   
           if (e.model.prefixIcon == "e-icon e-rarrowright")   
               selectedTab = ((tabObj.model.selectedItemIndex + 1) < tabObj.items.length) ? tabObj.model.selectedItemIndex + 1 : 0;   
           else selectedTab = ((tabObj.model.selectedItemIndex - 1) < 0) ? tabObj.items.length - 1 : tabObj.model.selectedItemIndex - 1;   
           tabObj.showItem(selectedTab);   
       }   
</code>   
   
You can get current selected tab item using model.selectedItemIndex. If you want to select a tab item, use showItem public method. It requires Tab index.    
   
Please find the code snippet for close tab:   
function Submit(e)   
       {   
        debugger   
           var tabObj = $("#StaticTab").data("ejTab");   
        // you can hide individual tab item using hideItem method   
          tabObj.hideItem(tabObj.model.selectedItemIndex);   
           // you can remove individual tab item using removeItem method   
          tabObj.removeItem(tabObj.model.selectedItemIndex);   
           // you can hide whole tab using hide method   
           tabObj.hide();   
           // you can destroy the tab using destroy method   
           tabObj.destroy();   
           // you can disable the tab using disable method   
           tabObj.disable();   
   
       }   
   
   
I also seem unable to render a Button in one of my. cshtml files (Views/Tab/QuickListTabContent.cshtml).   
In partial view render, you need to include a ScriptManager for normal mode because the control cannot find a script initialization in partial view. So, please include ScriptManager after that control initialization in partial view page.   
   
Please refer to the help link for partial rendering in normal mode:   
  
   
   
    
Regards,         
Karthikeyan V.

Thank you for your reply. I am still unable to render buttons in Partial Views (see tabs in "5. Syncfusion Tab Loaded from Partial View") and when I follow the example you provide the click on Next button in the first tab of "3. Syncfusion Static Tab" takes me to the 2nd tab of the "3. Syncfusion Static Tab" but click on Next or Previous of any other tab there for some reason changes selected tab of "5. Syncfusion Tab Loaded from Partial View" instead. Clicking on any buttons in "5. Syncfusion Tab Loaded from Partial View" does nothing.
What I need is Next/Previous buttons of "5. Syncfusion Tab Loaded from Partial View" control back and forth navigation within this tab and Next/Previous buttons of "3. Syncfusion Static Tab" control back and forth navigation within this tab. Please help.

I believe I got navigation in "3. Syncfusion Static Tab" resolved, but I still fail to render buttons or navigate using them in Partial Views ( "5. Syncfusion Tab Loaded from Partial View")

Hi Marina Brukhovetsky,    
  
Thanks for your update.        
        
In partial view, Button control ID should be given in a unique one. But, we can see that you have used the same ID in 3 Tab buttons. Due to this issue, has been raised. Can you please change the ID for buttons in partial view page?      
We have change a sample as workable one.  Please ensure with the below sample.

Thank you for your help! I am getting almost the result I want. I did try your suggestion for hiding the tab:
 function NavigateEvent(e)
 {
  var tab = $("#StaticTab").data("ejTab");
  var selectedTabIndex = 0;
  if (e.model.text == "Submit")
  {
     tab.hide();
  }
}
I expected the entire tab to be hidden, and it is, with exception of images associated with buttons of the currently selected tab:

@helper ApprovalsTabContent()

{

<h5>Work Order Approvals</h5>

<p>Approvals is a Work Order Wizard Fifth Tab.</p>

<p>

@Html.EJ().Button("PreviousA").Text("Previous").ShowRoundedCorner(true).CssClass("customLightBlue").ContentType(ContentType.TextAndImage).PrefixIcon("e-icon e-rarrowleft").ImagePosition(ImagePosition.ImageLeft).ClientSideEvents(e => e.Click("NavigateEvent"))

@Html.EJ().Button("CloseA").Text("Submit").ShowRoundedCorner(true).CssClass("customCss5").ContentType(ContentType.TextAndImage).PrefixIcon("e-icon e-righttick").ImagePosition(ImagePosition.ImageRight).Type(ButtonType.Submit).ClientSideEvents(e => e.Click("NavigateEvent"))

</p>

}

The icons e-righttick and e-rarrowleft are still visible; why would that be?

How can I disable individual pages of Tab control and enable them programmatically? I  have a function that is called upon a click on a button in the tab control, and I would like to use button ID to enable/disable another page in the tab control.
What I have:
<div id="Static">
 <h2>1. Static Tab</h2>
 @{Html.EJ().Tab("StaticTab").Items(data =>
 {
    data.Add().ID("StaticTabQuickList").Text("Quick List").ContentTemplate(@<div id="StaticQuickListTab">@QuickListTabContent()</div>);
    data.Add().ID("StaticTabParts").Text("Parts").ContentTemplate(@<div id="StaticPartsTab">@PartsTabContent()</div>);
    data.Add().ID("StaticTabLabor").Text("Labor").ContentTemplate(@<div id="StaticLaborTab">@LaborTabContent()</div>);
 }).Render();}
</div>

@helper QuickListTabContent()
{
 <h5>Work Order Quick List</h5>
 <p>Work Order Quick List is a Work Order Wizard First Tab.</p>
 <p>@Html.EJ().Button("NextQ").Text("Next").ShowRoundedCorner(true).CssClass("customGreen").ContentType(ContentType.TextAndImage).PrefixIcon("e-icon e-rarrowright").ImagePosition(ImagePosition.ImageRight).ClientSideEvents(e => e.Click("StaticNavigate"))</p>
}
function StaticNavigate(e)
{
   var tab = $("#StaticTab").data("ejTab");
   var index = 0;
   switch (e.target.id)
   {
    case "NextP":
     // enable #StaticTabParts"

Hi Marina,       
     
Thanks for your update.           
           
Yes, you can disable individual items of Tab control and enable them programmatically by using enabledItemIndex and disabledItemIndex properties in Tab control.   
  
Please refer to the below code snippet to dynamically enable and disable tab items   
  
<code>   
   
@{Html.EJ().Tab("StaticTab").DisabledItemIndex(new List<int> {1,2,3,4}).Items(data =>   
            {   
            data.Add().ID("StaticTabQuickList").Text("Quick List").ContentTemplate(@<div id="StaticQuickListTab">@QuickListTabContent()</div>);   
                           data.Add().ID("StaticTabParts").Text("Parts").ContentTemplate(@<divid="StaticPartsTab">@PartsTabContent()</div>);   
                           data.Add().ID("StaticTabLabor").Text("Labor").ContentTemplate(@<divid="StaticLaborTab">@LaborTabContent()</div>);   
                           data.Add().ID("StaticTabDescription").Text("Description").ContentTemplate(@<divid="StaticDescriptionTab">@DescriptionTabContent()</div>);   
                           data.Add().ID("StaticTabApprovals").Text("Approvals").ContentTemplate(@<divid="StaticApprovalsTab">@ApprovalsTabContent()</div>);   
                     }).Render();   
              }   
   
function StaticNavigate(e)   
              {   
                     var tab = $("#StaticTab").data("ejTab");   
                     var arrindex = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4];   
                     var index = 0;   
                        
                     if (e.model.text == "Next")   
                     {   
                         tab.option({ "enabledItemIndex": [tab.model.selectedItemIndex + 1] });   
                           index = tab.model.selectedItemIndex + 1 < tab.items.length ? tab.model.selectedItemIndex + 1 : 0;   
                           tab.showItem(index);   
                           arrindex.splice(arrindex.indexOf(tab.model.selectedItemIndex), 1);   
                           tab.option({ "disabledItemIndex": arrindex });   
                     }   
                     else if (e.model.text == "Previous")   
                     {   
                         tab.option({ "enabledItemIndex": [tab.model.selectedItemIndex - 1] });   
                         index = tab.model.selectedItemIndex - 1 < 0 ? tab.items.length - 1 : tab.model.selectedItemIndex - 1;   
                         tab.showItem(index);   
                        arrindex.splice(arrindex.indexOf(tab.model.selectedItemIndex), 1);   
                         tab.option({ "disabledItemIndex": arrindex });   
                     }   
                     else if (e.model.text == "Submit")   
                     {   
                           tab.disable();   
                     }   
              }   
   
   
</code>   
  
   
   
We have modified a sample as per your scenario and you can refer to it in the below link:     
  
Refer to the client side properties and methods for Tab control: https://help.syncfusion.com/api/js/ejtab#members:disableditemindex

How do add a new tab as a result of a button click? The help page says that I can "Add Tab dynamically: New Tab items can be added and removed at run time."
I have a button:

@Html.EJ().Button("Done").Text("Done").Size(ButtonSize.Medium).ShowRoundedCorner(true).Type(ButtonType.Reset).ClientSideEvents(e => e.Click("Done"))

 I would like Done function to open a new tab, BoodStrap.cshtml, see example attached.

Thank you again, but your answer while helpful does not achieve a goal I have. Assuming I already have a view (BootStrap.cshtml) in my Views folder, I would like to open it in the second tab in addition to Main.cshtml, as a result of clicking Done button.
