I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to accomplish. However, in general, it is helpful to remember that ASP.Net pages output plain old HTML and javascript ('cause that's all a browser understands). If you are building some kind of HTML interface, which has "tabs", then you just need to pass some kind of information to the server about which tab the user has selected (eg using a HTML link control), and then build your page appropriately.

What I'm trying to do is to make it look like multiple datagrids are super imposed over each other. Each datagrid has a tab or link at the top showing a variable (most likely a name), which can bring (when selected) a particular datagrid (data) to the top of the pile of datagrids. This idea is sometimes called folders, tabbing or property pages. I just want to know if it is possible to do such a thing.

Hi Stephen,

If I understand the situation correctly, yes, this can be done in ASP.NET.

The easiest way to set this up is to create a HTML table with the tabs and a few panels that contain the datagrids.

Each cell in the tab table contains a single tab with a hyperlink control. As soon as the hyperlink is clicked, a server side event is triggered. Inside the event, you can find out which tab was clicked and then hide all panels containing the grids and only show the right panel and datagrid for the current tab. You can then set the "selected" style for the current tab to make it appear selected.

The IBuySpy example (available from http://www.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabindex=5&tabid=42) shows how you can do this.

In fact, the whole ASP.NET site is based on this principle.
