  • jqxTab headers display issue #134680


    I am using jqxTabs in a jqxWindow. Tabs work as expected if the window is displayed, however, if I add a tab when the window is hidden and then ‘open’ the window the tab headers are not displayed correctly.

    To demonstrate the issue I have added a tab ‘add’ button (consisting of ‘input’ html, jqxButton call and ‘click’ event handler) to the ver16.0.0 Javascript & Jquery windows demo code ‘defaultfunctionality.htm’. If you run demo and press the ‘add’ button a new tab is added correctly. If you ‘close’ the window, add a tab and then open the window the tab headers are not displayed correctly.

    Do you have a fix for this problem?

Consider using a jqxWindow when you want greater customization, you want to block the user interface outside the window, or when you want to retrieve a DialogResult and other data from the popup window. jqxWindow can be displayed as a modal dialog window that blocks user interaction with the underlying user interface or as a standard window without blocking the web page's user interface.</title>

                                Avatar is a 2009 American[6][7] epic science fiction film written and directed by
                                James Cameron, and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle
                                Rodriguez, Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi and Sigourney Weaver. The film is set
                                in the mid-22nd century, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium
                                on Pandora , a lush habitable moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system.
                                The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local
                                tribe of Na'vi—a humanoid species indigenous to Pandora. The film's title refers
                                to the genetically engineered Na'vi-human hybrid bodies used by a team of researchers
                                to interact with the natives of Pandora.

                                End Game is a 2006 action/thriller film, written and directed by Andy Cheng. The
                                film stars Cuba Gooding, Jr. as Secret Service agent Alex Thomas, who is shot in
                                the hand, while unsuccessfully trying to protect the President (played by Jack Scalia)
                                from an assassin's bullet. Later, with the help of a persistent newspaper reporter
                                named Kate Crawford (played by Angie Harmon), he uncovers a vast conspiracy behind
                                what initially appeared to be a lone gunman. James Woods, Burt Reynolds, and Anne
                                Archer co–star in this film that was originally set to be shown in cinemas by MGM
                                in 2005, but was delayed by the takeover from Sony and eventually sent direct to
                                <img src="../../../images/twilight.png" style="float: left; margin: 10px;" alt="" />
                                The project was in development for approximately three years at Paramount Pictures,
                                during which time a screen adaptation that differed significantly from the novel
                                was written. Summit Entertainment acquired the rights to the novel after three years
                                of the project's stagnant development. Melissa Rosenberg wrote a new adaptation
                                of the novel shortly before the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike and sought
                                to be faithful to the novel's storyline. Principal photography took 44 days, and
                                completed on May 2, 2008; the film was primarily shot in Oregon

                                Dewey (Ethan Suplee) and Gilleece (T.J. Miller), are ordered by Fuller operations
                                dispatcher Bunny (Kevin Chapman) to move a freight train led by locomotive #777
                                (nicknamed "Triple Seven") off its current track to clear the track for an excursion
                                train carrying schoolchildren. Dewey attempts to take shortcuts, instructing Gilleece
                                to leave the hoses for the air brakes disconnected for the short trip. Dewey later
                                leaves the moving cab to throw a misaligned rail switch along the train's path,
                                but is unable to climb back on, as the train's throttle jumps from idle, to full
                                power. He is forced to report the train as a "coaster" to Fuller yardmaster Connie

    Hi AllanD,

    You can call the “render” method of the Tabs to re-render it.
