I know this is a very bizarre feature request and it doesn't really make much sense, but it is something I currently need, and perhaps some other people might benefit from it to. I haven't dug into the code yet, but I can't see this being too hard to support.
So the options now are to either load all of the tabs when the page loads, and just toggle between them with JS, or use AJAX to fetch each tab once it's clicked. I need option #3 - to use AJAX to fetch the tabs even if they have already been fetched before.
Why? Well, actions taken on the tabs (in my case) can directly affect what is displayed on the other tab. I need the users to be able to switch between the tabs and see the changes that would result some actions/forms submitted on each of the tabs. As it stands now, they wouldn't be able to see the changes because the content isn't loaded again once it has already been.
Do you think this is a feature we could add to the module? If not, could you point me in the right direction for how to accomplish this, hopefully without having to hack the module.
