Tabbar Issue - Only content displayed and not the tabs


I am using free version of tabbar. Both in IE 7 and Firefox, the code below displays only the content of the tabs like

Content 1

Content 2

Content 3

Also, there is no script error. The following is the code of the jsf file which has the tabbar.

<%@ page language=“java” contentType=“text/html;charset=UTF-8”%>

<%@ taglib prefix=“f” uri=“”%>

<%@ taglib prefix=“h” uri=“”%>




JavaServer Faces Page - ${pageContext.request.requestURI}


<div id=“a_tabbar” class=“dhtmlxTabBar” imgpath="…/dhtmlx/tabbar/imgs/"

style=“width:390; height:390;” skinColors="#FCFBFC,#F4F3EE"

select=“a1” tabstyle=“winRound”>

Content 1

Content 2

Content 3


Be sure that paths to js files are correct. There are only two ways how it can not init and not produce any error in the same time
- js files not included
- the class of the div tag is incorrect ( it is valid in your code, not sure how it will be processed by JSF )


Thanks for your quick response.

But I dont think both are the issues.

1. js files not included - The js files for grid were also in a similar location and the grid displays fine. Also I tried to check if the js is accessible by typing the path in the url and the js file opens fine.

2. class of the div tag in incorrect - I tried this in a plain jsp page. It does not work then too.

I tried the javascript init approach too. But I always get the “dhtmlXTabBar is undefined” script error. I found a similar issue posted in KB earlier, but the issue got resolved without the actual reason being found. Plz refer … t=7&q=6074

Also, the code of the jsp is below. Plz help.

<%@ page language=“java” contentType=“text/html;charset=UTF-8”%>

<link rel=“STYLESHEET” type=“text/css” href="/codebase/dhtmlxtabbar.css">

<script src="/codebase/dhtmlxtabbar.js"></script>

<script src="/codebase/dhtmlxtabbar_start.js"></script>




<div id=“a_tabbar” style=“width:400;height:100”></div>


tabbar=new dhtmlXTabBar(“a_tabbar”);





But I always get the “dhtmlXTabBar is undefined” script error.
Same as above, such error message can appears only if dhtmlxtabbar.js is not loaded on the page.

Not sure, is it matter or not, but you have incorrect structure of html , instead of

You need to have
