Incorrect AJAX call when preselecting a tab

Reported by: palbandoz Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:

When activating a jQueyUI Tabs with a preselected tab different than the first one, the selected tab is visually correct but the AJAX call done is not the right one, but the previous tab's one.

For instance, in the next example, if the initialActiveTab is 4, the tab titled "EEE" is selected but the AJAX call is './?ajax=3&tab=ddd'. So there is nothing showed in the selected tab.


<div id="tabs">
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=aaa'>AAA</a></li>
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=bbb'>BBB</a></li>
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=ccc'>CCC</a></li>
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=ddd'>DDD</a></li>
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=eee'>EEE</a></li>
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=fff'>FFF</a></li>
<li><a href='./?ajax=3&tab=ggg'>GGG</a></li>
<input type="hidden" id="initialActiveTab" value="4"/>


$(document).ready( function() {
    $("div#tabs").tabs({ selected: $("#initialActiveTab").val() });

I guess the problem starts with the hrefs assigned by jQueryUI, that start in #ui-tabs-1 instead of #ui-tabs-0:

<div class="ui-tabs ui-widget ui-widget-content ui-corner-all" id="tabs">
	<ul class="ui-tabs-nav ui-helper-reset ui-helper-clearfix ui-widget-header ui-corner-all">
<li class="ui-state-default ui-corner-top"><a href="#ui-tabs-1">AAA</a></li>
<li class="ui-state-default ui-corner-top"><a href="#ui-tabs-2">BBB</a></li>

I'm not seeing the behavior you describe.
