TABSTRIP Element | TabStrip Class

Adds a TabStrip element to a ASP.NET Web Form.

Syntax

ASP <tagPrefix:TABSTRIP ... >

Possible Values

tagPrefix Required. The element prefix associated with the WebControls namespace (Microsoft.Web.UI.WebControls). A TagPrefix is defined using the directive.

Remarks

The TabStrip control enables a menu-like selection of topics.

The TabStrip control is tightly connected to a second type of Windows Internet Explorer WebControls: the MULTIPAGE control. The MULTIPAGE control links a TAB to a page view.

The TabStrip control is declared within the <TabStrip> tags. Most style and property attributes of the TabStrip control are optional. By setting the style and/or property attributes, you can set the default styles and/or properties for all TABs and TABSEPARATORs. However, the style and/or property attributes can be overwritten within each TAB or TABSEPARATOR tags. This provides authors with greater flexibility when creating a personalized TabStrip control.

A TABSTRIP can start and end with special TABSEPARATORs to indicate the beginning and end of the TABSTRIP. You can also use the TABSEPARATOR element to separate TABs on the TABSTRIP.

This element is a block element.

This element requires a closing tag.
