Hello Dan.

You need to have some kind of "previous tab" button on your page is that correct ?

Each of the tabs on my page has links to other pages. When a user follows a link from a specific tab (say tab number 2), this opens the linked page. I need the 'back' button on the linked page to return to the tabbed page (easy), but also open the correct tab - i.e. the one from which they came,(Tab number 2), and not the default tab (number 1). I expect this needs some javascript on the tabbed page to identify to the linked page which tab they came from? and then using body onload on the tabbed page to open the correct tab?

Yes you can do this, it's very easy!

It's fully controllable by behaviors - If you want to navigate to a specific tab or start an event within it - it can be easily done with the Control DMXzone Tabs behavior.

How to go to the 'previous' tab:
1. Place the link (text/button/image) at the bottom of the tab
2. Click on it
3. Select: Tab Inspector > Behaviors > + > DMXzone > Control DMXzone Tabs
4. Select: Go To Prev Tab
That's it! When you click that link it will jump to the previous tab.

You can also go to a specific tag, the next tag, enable/disable tag, or start/stop rotation.

To see more details or a picture of the above go to and scroll down to Dreamweaver Integration. Pictured below:
