Hybrid TabStrip HtmlHelper Overview

The hybrid TabStrip HtmlHelper extension is a server-side wrapper for the hybrid Kendo UI TabStrip widget.

It allows you to configure the hybrid Kendo UI TabStrip from server-side code.

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the hybrid Kendo UI TabStrip for ASP.NET MVC.

  1. Create a new ASP.NET MVC 4 application. If you have installed the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Visual Studio Extensions, create a Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC application. If you decide not to use the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Visual Studio Extensions, follow the steps from the introductory article to add Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC to the application.

  2. Open HomeController.cs and modify the Index action method.

    Example
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            ViewBag.Message = "Welcome to ASP.NET MVC!";
    
            return View();
        }
    
  3. Add a Kendo UI TabStrip to the Index view. Like most hybrid Kendo UI widgets, the TabStrip must be initialized within the hybrid View content.

    Example
    
            <% Html.Kendo().MobileView()
                    .Name("tabstrip-view")
                    .Title("Inbox")
                    .Footer(() =>
                    {
                        %>
    
                        <%: Html.Kendo().MobileTabStrip()
                                .Items(items =>
                                {
                                    items.Add().Icon("contacts").Text("Profile");
                                    items.Add().Icon("history").Text("Sales");
                                    items.Add().Icon("favorites").Text("Rating");
                                    items.Add().Icon("settings").Text("Settings");
                                })
                        %>
                        <%
                    })
                    .Render();
            %>
    
    
            @(Html.Kendo().MobileView()
                .Name("tabstrip-view")
                .Title("Inbox")
                .Footer(
                    @<text>
    
                    @(Html.Kendo().MobileTabStrip()
                        .Items(items =>
                        {
                            items.Add().Icon("contacts").Text("Profile");
                            items.Add().Icon("history").Text("Sales");
                            items.Add().Icon("favorites").Text("Rating");
                            items.Add().Icon("settings").Text("Settings");
                        })
                    )
    
                </text>)
            )
    
  4. Initialize the mobile application.

    Example
    
            <%: Html.Kendo().MobileApplication()
                    .ServerNavigation(true)
            %>
    
    
            @(Html.Kendo().MobileApplication()
                .ServerNavigation(true)
            )
    
  5. Build and run the application.

Event Handling

You can subscribe to all hybrid TabStrip events.

By Handler Name

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a handler name.

Example

        <%: Html.Kendo().MobileTabStrip()
                .Name("tabstrip")
                .Items(items =>
                {
                    items.Add().Icon("contacts").Text("Profile");
                    items.Add().Icon("history").Text("Sales");
                    items.Add().Icon("favorites").Text("Rating");
                    items.Add().Icon("settings").Text("Settings");
                })
                .Events(events => events
                    .Select("onSelect")
                )

        %>

        <script>
        function onSelect() {
            //Handle the select event.
        }
        </script>

        @(Html.Kendo().MobileTabStrip()
            .Name("tabstrip")
            .Items(items =>
            {
                items.Add().Icon("contacts").Text("Profile");
                items.Add().Icon("history").Text("Sales");
                items.Add().Icon("favorites").Text("Rating");
                items.Add().Icon("settings").Text("Settings");
            })
            .Events(events => events
                .Select("onSelect")
            )
        )

        <script>
        function onSelect() {
            //Handle the select event.
        }
        </script>

Reference

Instances

You can reference a hybrid TabStrip instance by using the jQuery.data() method and the value specified through the Name() method. Once a reference is established, use the hybrid TabStrip API to control its behavior.

Example
    @(Html.Kendo().MobileTabStrip()
        .Name("tabstrip")
        .Items(items =>
        {
            items.Add().Icon("contacts").Text("Profile");
            items.Add().Icon("history").Text("Sales");
            items.Add().Icon("favorites").Text("Rating");
            items.Add().Icon("settings").Text("Settings");
        })
    )
    <script>
    $(function() {
        //Notice that the Name() of the TabStrip is used to get its client-side instance.
        var tabstrip = $("#tabstrip").data("kendoMobileTabStrip");
    });
    </script>
