Add the option to automatically select new tabs when they are added.

Code changes:

  • Add "selectOnAdd: false" as default for option.
  • Add "if (o.selectOnAdd);" as last line on "add" function

Note: Attached ui.tabs.js includes fix for ticket #3593 so "add" functionality works correctly.

Perhaps allowing negative numbers for the index (to start from the right instead of the left) would prevent the need for this option.

$(el).tabs('add', '#foo', 'new label').tabs('select', -1);

This could probably be limited to only allowing -1 for the last tab if that would be easier.

That is one possibility. But tabs could be added to the middle of the list too. That would require some additional logic.

It'd just be nice to have the option of making it the default behavior when you initialize the tabs.

No need for an option in the core IMHO. A simple solution is already described here:
