Saving the selected AJAX tab for reuse on another page

    It's simple enough to set the active tab on a postback (full load)

    For example, if I wanted to be on the 3rd tab when the page loads I could put
    Tabs.ActiveTabIndex = 2 in the load event

    However, If I now select the first Tab (Tabs.ActiveTabIndex = 0)
    and want to save that for the desired selected tab on another page
    it seems extremely intense. There are a lot of posts.

    For example:
    One post
    (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/ajax/maintaining-active-tab.aspx)involves a
    webservice and an entire article
    Just to get to something like this:

    Public Sub SaveTabIndex(ByVal UniqueTabID As String, ByVal Index As Integer)
    ' Simply save to the session
    System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Session(UniqueTabID) = Index
    End Sub

    It couldn't be that difficult to just save the active tab when the user
    selects it - for use on another page?
