    I am using SPServices to auto fill some information on a particular tab. I am also using headings on this tab. I am wondering if there is a way to have the link in my content editor webpart that says “Click Here” expand or active a tab that has the fields that get their information filled from the spservices script I am running. basically in its simplest form click here, will make a tab visible and hide the other tabs.

    Thanks!!!

    Hi,
    You can link to a tab like this:

    /DFFS/Lists/DFFS_CEWP/EditForm.aspx?ID=123&sTab=2

    This will select the third tab as it is 0-based.

    OK so this actually does work but I feel like I did not articulate what I am after.
    1: End User opens a new form
    2: link in CEWP allows them to activate a tab

    What I do not see is how I can identify ?ID= without there actually being an ID generated at the time because it is a new, unsaved form. I do not have a problem putting a button in a header in the tabs if this is how to get it done and will work.

    Thanks!!!

    Here is code to put in a “Heading HTML” section in a tab:
    select by index

    <input type="button" onclick="spjs.dffs.toggleSelectedTab(2)" value="Go to tab by index">

    select by tab uinqueID

    <input type="button" onclick="spjs.dffs.toggleSelectedTab('Tab3')" value="Go to tab by uniqueID">

    Or if what you meant was to link to a NewForm with tab specified:

    /DFFS/Lists/DFFS_CEWP/NewEditForm.aspx?sTab=2
