      That does.  I'll have to try it out.

      So using activeTabChange I will be able to set the constraints after the tab is showing?  I assume the event timing is different from a simple onClick on the tab link itself?

      Thanks for your help.

      What I think you need to do is setup a listener on the TabView for activeTabChange

      Then make sure that your DD tab is the one that is showing, then call dd.initContraints() on it, so that the region gets calculated.

      The problem is that the region can't be calculated if the tab is not visible. The content portion of a TabView is set to display: none which means it has no size applied to it so the Region can't be calculated..

      Does that make sense?

      Subject: [ydn-javascript] TabViews and Drag and Drop with boundaries doesn't mix well

      I have a drag and drop in region working, but when I add it within my
      TabViews the drag and drop elements get moved to the top of the tab by
      element-beta-min.js. This is what I want and would expect. But now
      when I move the draggable element it's boundary is still in the original
      place farther down the page (before element-beta-min.js moved the div

      I don't know much about element-beta-min.js, so I'm assuming that is the
      culprit. If you resize the window, then the draggable element
      boundaries are recalculated and everything works fine.

      So the question is: how do I dynamically recalculate the draggable
      boundary whenever I change tabs? An on click on the tab is too soon,
      the div hasn't been repositioned yet. I've even tried an onClick on the
      draggable element itself but I get unexpected boundaries at that point.

      Any ideas?

      Not sure if this will post, but here's the code.
