Type: Feature Request
Add ability to pass parameters via javascript for load on demand TabStrip
Add ability to pass dynamic parameters for load on demand tabs - 
similar functionality to the DataSource Read Data option which allows additional parameters to be returned via a javascript function.

This would be a logical extension and inline with similar functionality with other controls. Having to change approaches is a major drawback and invites longer throughput times and errors.

For a solution that prides itself on enhancing developer productivity a no go.


Please PLAN and add soonest

I agree with Danny. Also, would like to be able to specify the type of call (POST instead of the default GET).  All controls should provide consistent API for ajax or content loading. There is a forum post in which there is a partial implementation of POST via jQuery ajax, however the implementation left out the update of the tab in the success handler. I found preventing the default behavior interfered with the rendering and activating the clicked tab.

I've changed the feature request's status from "Completed" to "Unplanned", since the requested "Data" option (similar to the one the dataSource has) is currently not available for the TabStrip's tabs.

There is an alternative way to send additional parameters through the LoadContentFrom method, e.g.:

.LoadContentFrom("Tab1Action", "Home", new { shipName = "Value1", freight = "Value2" });

Is this issue resolved?

Like Danny mention, we too use LoadContentFrom and would prefer to have something like the grid  Data("JavascriptFunctionToGetParamaters")) and then reload the Tab with javascript; instead of manually refresh the content with $.ajax

Just moved to the latest version however I can't see any difference.  As per my original follow up comment we use LoadContentFrom via the MVC wrappers.  I was expecting to do something similar to reading grid data were parameters can be passed via a javascript function:

Read(read => read.Action("_Grid", "Test").Data("Grid_OnDataBinding"))

This does not fulfil my requirement - I don't want to define the tabs using data binding, I am referring to tabs defined with LoadContentFrom 

What I am suggesting is the ability to define a javascript function to allow additional parameters to be passed which would be called when a tab defined using LoadContentFrom is selected .
