The Telerik UI TabStrip for ASP.NET MVC exposes multiple events that allow you to control and customize the behavior of the UI component.

For a complete example on basic TabStrip events, refer to the demo on using the events of the TabStrip.

Handling by Handler Name

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

    .Items(tabstrip =>
            .LoadContentFrom(Url.Action("Paris", "Home"));

            .LoadContentFrom(Url.Action("Sofia", "Home"));
    .Events(events => events
<script type="text/javascript">
    function onShow(e) {
        console.log("Shown: " + $(e.item).find("> .k-link").text());

    function onSelect(e) {
        console.log("Selected: " + $(e.item).find("> .k-link").text());

    function onActivate(e) {
        console.log("Activated: " + $(e.item).find("> .k-link").text());

    function onContentLoad(e) {
        console.log("Content loaded in <b>"+ $(e.item).find("> .k-link").text() + "</b>");

    function onError(e) {
        console.error("Loading failed with " + e.xhr.statusText + " " + e.xhr.status);
