The OnClientTabSelected client-side event occurs when the user selects a tab, after the tab has been selected.

The event handler receives two parameters:

  1. The instance of the tab strip firing the event.

  2. An eventArgs parameter containing the following method:

  • get_tab returns a reference to the RadTab that was clicked.

  • get_domEvent returns a reference to the DOM event object for the action that caused the selection.

You can use this event to respond when the user clicks on a tab:

function OnClientTabSelected(sender, eventArgs)
    var tab = eventArgs.get_tab();
<telerik:RadTabStrip RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadTabStrip1" runat="server" OnClientTabSelected="OnClientTabSelected" ... />
