I am trying to get popup's working in my esri JS map and I have the tab's mostly working but I am missing a resize function to have the tab container sized properly on load. When I click a polygon and the popup appears the tab headers are visible but not the content. I need to click a tab in order for the content to appear. How do i remedy that?

I have simplified map that you can see my code here http://maps.ducks.ca/pmv/

Lastly any idea how I can populate that last tab with the URL's to the attachments? Essentially i'd like to put the "showAttachments" info inside the tab rather than below it.

Two things to fix the tab container issue:

  1. use doLayout: false when creating your tab container
  2. set up a selection-change event listener to resize your tab container on the fly

For #1:

var tc = new TabContainer({
  style: "height: 100%; width: 100%;",
  useMenu: false,
  doLayout: false,
  useSlider: false
}, domConstruct.create("div"));

For #2:

app.map.infoWindow.on("selection-change", function(e) {
  if (e.target.features) {
    query(".dijitTabContainer", this.domNode).forEach(function(node) {
      var tc = registry.getEnclosingWidget(node);
      if (tc) {

In the snippet above, query is an alias for dojo/query and registry is an alias for dijit/registry. Make sure you add those to your require().

For the showAttachments stuff, I don't see that in your current code and it's better to ask that as a separate question (try to stick to one question per thread here).
