Fix selected tab in SharePoint top links menu

Written by  on July 21, 2010 

Fastest way to accomplish this is to use jquery! :)

function fixTabs(){
    $.each($(".customNavTabActive"), function() {
        $(this).removeClass("customNavTabActive");
        $(this).parentsUntil("table").each(function() {
            $(this).removeClass("customNavTabActive");
        });
    });
    $.each($("a.customNavTab"), function() {
        if (this.href == document.location.href || this.href + "/default.aspx" == document.location.href) {
            $(this).parent("td").addClass("customNavTabActive");
        }
    });
}

Update: I have improved this code a little bit :)

function fixTabs(){
    var normalNavTavCss = "customNavTab";
    var firstCellActiveCss = "customNavTabActive";
    var firstCellCss = "customNavTab";
    var lastCellActiveCss = "customNavTabActive";
    var lastCellCss = "customNavTab";
    var cellActiveCss = "customNavTabActive";
    $.each($("." + cellActiveCss), function() {
        $(this).removeClass(cellActiveCss);
        $(this).parentsUntil("table").each(function() {
        $(this).removeClass(cellActiveCss);
        });
    });
    var lastCell;
    var lastCellSelected;
    $.each($("." + normalNavTavCss + " a"), function(i) {
        lastCell = $(this).parent("td");
        var location = document.location.href.replace("/default.aspx", "");
        var link = this.href.replace("/default.aspx", "");
        lastCellSelected = (link == location || location.indexOf(link) > -1);
        if (lastCellSelected) {
            if (i == 0) {
                lastCell.addClass(firstCellActiveCss);
            }
            else {
                lastCell.addClass(cellActiveCss);
            }
        }
        else if (i == 0) {
            lastCell.addClass(firstCellCss);
        }
    });
    if (lastCellSelected) {
        lastCell.removeClass(cellActiveCss);
        lastCell.removeClass(firstCellActiveCss);
        lastCell.addClass(lastCellActiveCss);
    }
    else {
        lastCell.addClass(lastCellCss);
    }
}
