AjaxControlToolkit’s TabContainer: Navigation Buttons With Scroll Header

I used the code from Matt Berseth to create navigation buttons to change the selected tabs, but as I was using the tabs in a Left frame in the Web application; I did not have enough space to display all the tabs headers, the navigation buttons was working fine but the headers was invisible, so I changed the code to add a horizontal scrolling for the Header. I am creating dynamic tabs so I do not know the required value of the scroll as I do not know the width of the headers, and so I am using (_header.offsetWidth) for the active tab as a scroll value

 

HTML code:

 

 

<cc2:TabContainer  AutoPostBack=”false” style=”Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 0px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 18px”  ID=”TabContainer1″ runat=”server” Width=”100%”>

</cc2:TabContainer>

          

<asp:ImageButton  ImageUrl=”images/scrollnext.gif”  id=”tabNext” ToolTip=”Next tab”   OnClientClick=”onNavigate(true); return false;”  style=”Z-INDEX: 102;  POSITION: absolute; TOP: 0px;  left:20px      runat=”server” />

<asp:ImageButton ImageUrl=”images/scrollpre.gif” id=”tabPrev” ToolTip=”Previous tab” OnClientClick=”onNavigate(false); return false;”  style=”Z-INDEX: 102;  POSITION: absolute; TOP: 0px; “  runat=”server” />

 

JavaScript functions:

 

    function onNavigate(isMoveNext)

    {

        //  find the behavior for the tab control

        var tabs = $find(‘TabContainer1’);

        //  figure out what the total number of tabs are

        var totalNumOfTabs = tabs.get_tabs().length;

        //  if we don’t have any tabs, just return

        if(totalNumOfTabs > 0)

        {

            var newTabIndex;

            var currentTabIndex = tabs.get_activeTabIndex();

            if(isMoveNext)

            {

                //  wrap around to the begining

                if(currentTabIndex + 1 == totalNumOfTabs)

                {

                    newTabIndex = 0;

                }

                else

                {

                    newTabIndex = currentTabIndex + 1;

                }

            }

            else

            {

                //  wrap around to the end

                if(currentTabIndex – 1 < 0)

                {

                    newTabIndex = totalNumOfTabs – 1;

                }

                else

                {

                    newTabIndex = currentTabIndex – 1

                }

            }

            tabs.set_activeTabIndex(newTabIndex);

            var aTab  = tabs.get_activeTab()

            if(isMoveNext)

            {

                if (newTabIndex == 0)

                {

                    document.getElementById(“TabContainer1_header”).scrollLeft=0;}

                else

                {

                    scrollDivLeft(“TabContainer1_header”,aTab._header.offsetWidth);}

                }

            else

            {

                if (newTabIndex == totalNumOfTabs – 1)

                {

                    document.getElementById(“TabContainer1_header”).scrollLeft=totalNumOfTabs*aTab._header.offsetWidth;

                }

                else

                {

                    scrollDivRight(“TabContainer1_header”,aTab._header.offsetWidth);

                }

            }

        }

    }                                                             

                            

          function scrollDivLeft(id,scrollStep)

          {

        document.getElementById(id).scrollLeft+=scrollStep

    }

 

    function scrollDivRight(id,scrollStep)

    {

        document.getElementById(id).scrollLeft-=scrollStep

    }

 

 

And this how the header looks like

Using the wheel mouse button with AjaxControlToolkit slider

 I wanted to use the wheel mouse button to slide the slider up or down to use it in a Mapping application for Zoom In/Out, I used a java script function to detect the wheel mouse on the Map, I wanted the Zoom function to start when the user release the wheel mouse so I added a timer to detect that the user stopped using the wheel button 

 

   var hTimer = null;

 

   function wheelZoom(e)

    {

        try

        {

            e = e ? e : window.event;

            var raw = e.detail ? e.detail : e.wheelDelta;

            var normal = e.detail ? e.detail * -1 : e.wheelDelta / 40;

            if (normal > 0)

            {

                var slider = $find(“Slider2”);

                if (slider != null)

                {

                    slider.set_Value(slider.get_Value()-1);

                }

                else

                {

                }

            }

            else if(normal < 0)

            {

                var slider = $find(“Slider2”);

                if (slider != null)

                {

                    slider.set_Value(slider.get_Value()+1);

                }

                else

                {

                }

            }

            if (hTimer != null)

            {

                window.clearTimeout(hTimer)

            }

            else   

            {

           

            }

            hTimer = window.setTimeout(doZoomWheel, 500)

            cancelEvent(e);

        }

        catch(err)

          {

            alert(err.message)

          }

          finally

          {

                  

          }

    }

 

In the above code the slider will response to the wheel mouse but the Zoom function will be called only when the user stop using the wheel button

 

 

function doZoomWheel()

    {

        if (hTimer)

        {

            hTimer = null;

            Zoom();

        }

    }

Dynamically creating a GridView inside AjaxControlToolkit Tabs

I wanted to search through multiple tables in database and display the results in GridViews inside Ajax Tabs, each tab will represent the results of a single table

 

First I need to a add an AjaxControlToolkit Tab Container

 

<cc2:TabContainer  AutoPostBack=”false”  ID=”TabContainer1″ runat=”server” Width=”100%”></cc2:TabContainer>

 

In my Code I will create a function to create the result tab, the input of this function is a DataSet of the search results through a single table and the Table name

 

    Private Sub fillDGResults(ByVal ds As DataSet, ByVal sTableName As String )

         Dim tab As AjaxControlToolkit.TabPanel = New AjaxControlToolkit.TabPanel()

         tab.ID = “tab_” + sTableName  

         tab.Style.Item(“Width”) = “100%”

         TabContainer1.Tabs.Add(tab)

         Dim UpPanel As UpdatePanel = New UpdatePanel()

         Dim printButton As ImageButton = New ImageButton()

         printButton.ImageUrl = “images/print1_norm.PNG”

         UpPanel.UpdateMode = UpdatePanelUpdateMode.Conditional

 

         Dim gv As GridView = New GridView

         gv = CreateGridView()

         gv.ID = sTableName + ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count.ToString()

         printButton.Attributes(“onClick”) = “javascript:CallPrint(‘” & gv.ID & “‘,'” & sTableName & “‘);”

         UpPanel.ID = “up_” + sTableName

         tab.Controls.Add(UpPanel)

         UpPanel.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(printButton)

         UpPanel.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(gv)

         gv.Style.Item(“Width”) = “100%”

         gv.DataSource = ds

         gv.PageIndex = 0

         gv.DataBind()

         gv.PageIndex = 0

         tab.HeaderText = sTableName + ” (“ + ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count.ToString() + “)”

         tab.EnableViewState = True

         TabContainer1.EnableViewState = True

     End Sub

 

 

And this is the function to create the GridView

 

 

   Private Function CreateGridView() As GridView

        Dim gv As GridView = New GridView()

        AddHandler gv.RowDataBound, AddressOf gv_RowDataBound

        AddHandler gv.RowCreated, AddressOf gv_RowCreated

        AddHandler gv.RowEditing, AddressOf gv_RowEditing

        AddHandler gv.SelectedIndexChanged, AddressOf gv_SelectedIndexChanged

        AddHandler gv.RowCommand, AddressOf gv_RowCommand

        AddHandler gv.PageIndexChanging, AddressOf gv_PageIndexChanging

        AddHandler gv.PageIndexChanged, AddressOf gv_PageIndexChanged

 

        gv.PageIndex = 0

        gv.EnableViewState = True

        gv.FooterStyle.CssClass = “SimpleGrayTableFooterStyle”

        gv.RowStyle.CssClass = “ResultsPanel”

        gv.HeaderStyle.CssClass = “ResultsPanelHeader”

        gv.PagerStyle.CssClass = “PagerStyle”

        gv.AllowPaging = True

        gv.PageSize = 15

        gv.PagerSettings.Mode = PagerButtons.NumericFirstLast

        gv.PagerSettings.Position = PagerPosition.TopAndBottom

        gv.PagerSettings.FirstPageText = “<<“

        gv.PagerSettings.LastPageText = “>>”

        gv.PagerSettings.PageButtonCount = 5

 

        Dim aspCF As CommandField = New CommandField()

        aspCF.ShowSelectButton = True

        aspCF.ButtonType = ButtonType.Link

        aspCF.SelectText = “<img align=top BorderColor=transparent border=0 alt=’Show in Map’ src=’images/map20_norm.PNG’ />”

        gv.Columns.Add(aspCF)

        aspCF = New CommandField()

        aspCF.ShowEditButton = True

        aspCF.EditText = “<img align=top BorderColor=transparent border=0 alt=’Show Info’ src=’images/view_norm.PNG’ />”

 

        gv.Columns.Add(aspCF)

        gv.Page = Me.Page

        CreateGridView = gv

 

    End Function

 

 

Finally I would like to thank Siderite for his help
