Need more details... what exactly are you having issues with? Are you trying to get the tabpanel and put data into it or are you having trouble getting information out of an iframe?

If it's the tabpanel you're having difficulty retrieving give the tabs a unique ID and call Ext.getCmp('myNewTab') and then update it ( or add a component, whichever necessary to complete your action )

thank bryall for the reply.

actually like this, in the 1st panel, the content are iframe which to test.php and the php file contain list dynamic of link from a database. What i want to do is when the user click on the link in the test.php it will open specific tab in the second panel. Is there any problem if i do the extjs coding in the test.php (iframe) to refer to the tab.

You would need to call a function from the parent window... so in your iframe I would have a function that looks something like....

if(parent.window) {
if(typeof parent.window.someFunction == 'function') {
