How to add Grid inside a tab item?

Platform: ASP.NET Web Forms |
Control: Tab |
Product Version:
Tags: gridcontrol, tab


Tab control used for navigations can use any controls inside its content. We have provided solution for adding our Grid control inside tab content section.


To add Grid item inside tab, create a tab control in a sample with corresponding script and CSS references. Inside the <ej:TabItem> elements <ContentSection> tag you can add the Grid control.

Please refer the following link for adding a simple Grid control in ASP.NET application:



<ej:Tab ID="Defaulttab" runat="server" Width="1000px">
            <ej:TabItem Id="tab1" Text="Tab 1">
// Defining the grid control inside ContentSection
              <ej:Grid  runat="server" ID="GridControlDefault" Width="600px" AllowScrolling="true" AllowResizing="true" AllowPaging="true">
               <EditSettings AllowAdding="True" AllowEditing="True" AllowDeleting="True"></EditSettings>
                 <ej:Column Field="OrderID" HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="True" TextAlign="Right" Width="65" />
                 <ej:Column Field="Canceled" HeaderText="Canceled" TextAlign="Right" Width="75" EditType="Boolean" />
                 <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Customer ID" Width="80" />
                 <ej:Column Field="EmployeeID" HeaderText="Employee ID" TextAlign="Right" Width="85" />
                  <ej:Column Field="Freight" HeaderText="Freight" TextAlign="Right" Width="60" Format="{0:C}" />
                  <ej:Column Field="OrderDate" HeaderText="Order Date" TextAlign="Right" Width="80" Format="{0:MM/dd/yyyy}" />
                  <ej:Column Field="ShipCity" HeaderText="Ship City" Width="90" />                              
                 <ScrollSettings Height="380" Width="650" ></ScrollSettings>          
            <ej:TabItem Id="tab2" Text="Tab 2">
                    <ej:DatePicker runat="server" ID="datepicker"></ej:DatePicker>
            <ej:TabItem Id="tab3" Text="Tab 3">
                    <ej:NumericTextBox runat="server" ID="numeric"></ej:NumericTextBox>

Data binding for Grid columns defined in code behind


    List<Orders> order = new List<Orders>();    
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    private void BindDataSource()
      int code = 10000;
// Defining grid columns and populating the lists
      for (int i = 1; i < 10; i++)
        order.Add(new Orders(code + 1, false, "ALFKI", i + 0, 2.3 * i, new DateTime(1991, 05, 15), "Berlin"));
        order.Add(new Orders(code + 2, false, "ANATR", i + 2, 3.3 * i, new DateTime(1990, 04, 04), "Madrid"));
        order.Add(new Orders(code + 3, false, "ANTON", i + 1, 4.3 * i, new DateTime(1957, 11, 30), "Cholchester"));
        order.Add(new Orders(code + 4, false, "BLONP", i + 3, 5.3 * i, new DateTime(1930, 10, 22), "Marseille"));
        order.Add(new Orders(code + 5, false, "BOLID", i + 4, 6.3 * i, new DateTime(1953, 02, 18), "Tsawassen"));
        code += 5;
// Binding the datasource to Grid object
      this.GridControlDefault.DataSource = order;
// Class for binding grid columns        
public class Orders
    public Orders()
    public Orders(long OrderId, bool Canceled, string CustomerId, int EmployeeId, double Freight, DateTime OrderDate, string ShipCity)
      this.OrderID = OrderId;
      this.Canceled = Canceled;
      this.CustomerID = CustomerId;
      this.EmployeeID = EmployeeId;
      this.Freight = Freight;
      this.OrderDate = OrderDate;
      this.ShipCity = ShipCity;
    public long OrderID { get; set; }
    public bool Canceled { get; set; }
    public string CustomerID { get; set; }
    public int EmployeeID { get; set; }
    public double Freight { get; set; }
