I have to implement tabs in asp.net. There are two ways that people implement this.
1. Fake it, by not using the actual tab control but using divs, css to make it look like tabs.
2. Using a tab control from AjaxControlToolKit.
I have not used both before. But i have to build a small application which should contain around 6 tabs. Each tab will have around 10-25 controls including GridView. Now i am not sure, which approach to go for which i can easily manage and shall be able to complete most of my implementation. I understand if i use the TabControl from Ajax toolkit, i have to implement the rest of the functionality as well in the Async Model using UpdatePanel. It will be real nice exercise for me, having not worked so much on Ajax before as well.
Can i get some good suggestions? If you vote for Ajax, can you please recommend me a good book or site that has good details and samples on the Ajax Control tools and implementations for me to refer whenever i get stuck. Also i wouldn't mind, if someone can voluntarily guide me throughout the application building process using Ajax as i may have lot of few initial questions.
