    Hey,
    I require a tab that needs to be created apart from the four that are already existing and have a custom module that have a flow of 5 pages. On click of each multiple URL per page, there are specific changes that need to be set which would be set as per the flow when the page is rendered. The flow would be that there are multiple pages on click of each the page, the user should be redirected to a different page, but the selected tab should not be changed, just only the flow page should be page2 and few controls inside it. How, this can be achieved in terms of creating a new flow in the URL of the page.

    Regards,
    Siddesh Kapadi

    Hi Siddesh Kapadi,

    The RadTabStrip control and its tabs are dynamically generated by PageEditorBase class - CreateDefaultViewControls method which can be overridden, but it is not possible to replace the PageEditorBase due to many places where this type is used.

    You can put additional RadTabs for modules where the RadTagStrip control is declared in the  module template - ContentPreview.ascx .

    Hi Siddesh,

    Each module has its own PreviewView and different template. For GenericContent this is
    [Sitefinity_3_7_standard_ExternalTemplates]\Sitefinity\Admin\ControlTemplates\Generic_Content\ContentPreview.ascx

    Hey Ivan,
    I need to add a tab to the pages module NOT to the Gneriic Content or any other module.
    Anyways, ContentPreview.ascx is not available in the External templates for Pages module.

    Regards,
    Siddesh Kapadi

    Hello Siddesh,

    Pages is not a module and its tabs are dynamically generated.

    Best wishes,
