1. Create new ASP.NET AjaxEnabled Website. 

2. Drag and Drop TabContainer Control from Toolkit to web form. 

3. Drag and Drop TabPanel Control from Toolkit to TabContainer.And Drop Label, Textbox and Button Controls to TabPanels, like this 

<cc1:TabContainer ID="TabContainer1" runat="server" ActiveTabIndex="0">
<cc1:TabPanel ID="TabPanel1" runat="server" HeaderText="Tab 1">
        <ContentTemplate>
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button1" />

    font-family:Calibri;
    font-size: 14px;
    font-weight: bold;
    background-color: #ffffff;
    margin-left: 0px;
}

.Tab .ajax__tab_body
{
    border:1px solid #b4cbdf;
    padding-top:0px;
}
/*Tab Active*/
.Tab .ajax__tab_active .ajax__tab_tab
{
    color: #ffffff;
    background:url("../../tab_active.gif") repeat-x;
    height:20px;
}
.Tab .ajax__tab_active .ajax__tab_inner
{
    color: #ffffff;
    background:url("../../tab_left_active.gif") no-repeat left;
    padding-left:10px;
}
.Tab .ajax__tab_active .ajax__tab_outer
{
    color: #ffffff;
    background:url("../../tab_right_active.gif") no-repeat right;
    padding-right:6px;
}
/*Tab Hover*/
.Tab .ajax__tab_hover .ajax__tab_tab
{
    color: #000000;
    background:url("../../tab_hover.gif") repeat-x;
    height:20px;
}
.Tab .ajax__tab_hover .ajax__tab_inner
{
    color: #000000;
    background:url("../../tab_left_hover.gif") no-repeat left;
    padding-left:10px;
}
.Tab .ajax__tab_hover .ajax__tab_outer
{
    color: #000000;
    background:url("../../tab_right_hover.gif") no-repeat right;
    padding-right:6px;
}
/*Tab Inactive*/
.Tab .ajax__tab_tab
{
    color: #666666;
    background:url("../../tab_Inactive.gif") repeat-x;
    height:20px;
}
.Tab .ajax__tab_inner
{
    color: #666666;
    background:url("../../tab_left_inactive.gif") no-repeat left;
    padding-left:10px;
}
.Tab .ajax__tab_outer
{
    color: #666666;
    background:url("../../tab_right_inactive.gif") no-repeat right;
    padding-right:6px;
    margin-right: 2px;
