I'm doing some proof on concepts to ensure that there are no scalability issues down the line.

Essentially I have 5 tabs, all with dynamic content. Some of the tabs include an external page (.cfm page) which query a DB.

Is there a way to control the tabs and how they render the content? i.e. I would only want the active tab to render content back to the browser. The other 4 tabs would remain content free until clicked.

deferredRender seems like it might be on the right lines but on reading it doesnt seem to fit my needs.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Many thanks
