About RadTabStrip for ASP.NET AJAX

Organize the content of your site or app efficiently with the help of Telerik’s ASP.NET Tab control. You can achieve slick-looking tab bars through the countless configuration options : create vertical, hierarchical or overlapping tabs, insert images, add templates and much more. Thanks to its semantic rendering technology RadTabstrip produces considerably small amount of HTML, which guarantees proper performance behavior when having lots of page views.

RadTabStrip and 80+ other controls are part of UI for ASP.NET AJAX, a comprehensive toolset taking care of the common functionality of your application, while leaving you with more time to work on its business logic.

  • Implement nested RadTabs with associated RadMultiPage controls
  • Manage the Vertical and Horizontal orientation of RadTabStrip
