GrailsUI Tab Manipulation

We've been using the Tab Layout available in the GrailsUI plugin in our application, but one minor annoyance we've discovered is that while saving the form resets the active tab.

The javascript library that renders the tabs gives you access to the tab information, through the variable GRAILSUI

For example, the following gsp would always display the first tab on save.

<gui:tabView id="myTabs">
<gui:tab label="Basic" active="true">
<gui:tab label="Firms">

We can now access the tabs in custom javascript by using

all that's left is to save a hidden field, and change the tab 'active' definitions
