      Any takers to set me straight? :-)

      To recap, I'm trying to maintain which tab was selected during each
      postback (.Net web app). I'm trying to catch the activeTabChange event.

      Here's the js in the page header area. For the <body> onload event I
      have it set to call the setTabIndex function but it get a js null
      error that I cannot pin point.

      <script type="text/javascript">
      var mTabs = new YAHOO.widget.TabView("models");
      var handleActiveTabChange = function(e) {
      var hdnFieldIdx = document.getElementById("hdnSelectedTab");
      hdnFieldIdx.value = e.newValue;};
      mTabs.addListener('activeTabChange', handleActiveTabChange);
      function setTabIndex(){
      var selectedIndex = document.getElementById("hdnSelectedTab").value;
      alert('selectedIndex: ' + selectedIndex);
      var tabView = document.getElementById("models");
      if (typeof selectedIndex!=="undefined" && (! isNaN(selectedIndex)) ){
      tabView.set('activeIndex', selectedIndex);
