I have a ig:webtab control (version 11.1 using VB) inside a Infragistics Web Async Refresh Panel. The webtab has various controls from drop down list to text boxes and check boxes inside of the different tabs. When I click an item from a drop down list the entire webtab controls disappears from the page. I have the ajax set to off and the post back flag for selected index change to off, like this:
<PostBackOptions EnableAjax="false" /><AutoPostBackFlags SelectedIndexChanged="Off" />
I have tried it with other variations of these settings but I figured this was the correct setup since I am having the WARP control the asynchronous post backs. I want the WARP to handle the async because when I enable the async on the tabs they do not reset the tabs to their default settings when switching between them and I am having difficulty with trying to accomplish a reset with tab index change event because it fires when I select something from the drop down list and resets my just made selection. I have several different pages with this setup that I am changing out the existing ultrawebtab controls with the 11.1 webtab controls. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
I had been looking at your post and in result of that I have developed a sample in order to reproduce your scenario. I added a WARP and inside it I placed the WebTab control. In the first tab there is a WebDropDown.The issue you described is not reproducible in the way I configured it. Probably I missed something so that, can you please review the sample and modify it in the way the issue is reproducible. I also noticed that you mixed our new controls with the old ones from our classic toolset. Please note that the controls from the classic toolset are based on our Aikido framework and it is not recommended to mixed them up with our new controls easily the WARP control can be replaced from UpdatePanel.
If you have any other question please do not hesitate to contact us.
Looking forward to hear from you.

If I had to guess I think your post is probably correct in that it has something to do with mixing the controls. Inside of the tab controls there is still a ultrawebgrid on most of the pages and possibly other ultra controls. Some other changes have been higher on my list of priorities so I have not had a chance to troubleshoot the controls further but I will reply back with results. I appreciate your feedback.
Thank you for your help.
I was able to switch out some of the controls on one of the pages today. The page consisted of a ultrawebtab inside of another ultrawebtab. I replaced both with version 11.1 webtabs, (.NET Framework 4). The outter webtab changes between tabs just fine but when I go to use a drop down list or something inside of the one of the tabs it disappears. The two webtabs are the only infragistics controls on that page, they have various asp labels, text fields, and drop down list in them.
Like you mentioned I thought having the old versions gone from the page would fix it but it still appears to be an issue.
I completely removed everything from one of the pages I'm converting and put everything back piece by piece with the new WebTab controls in place. The WARP panel appears to be the culprite of the controls completely disappearing.
When I set enableajax = "true" i recieve errors because some of the variables and drop down list selections are not stored/sent properly so it trys to pass in a variable set to nothing. If the enableajax is set to false then it works properly. I need to avoid the page doing a full post back so the screen isn't constantly flashing at the user.
