WPF TabControl Key Features

Customizable Tab Headers

You can modify the shape of the tab headers to Rounded, Rectangle, or Sloped using a single property. This is ideal for non-designer users; you don't need to change the control's template to change the shape of the tab headers.

Display Large Number of Tabs

The WPF TabControl supports overflow navigation when there are a large number of tabs. If the tab items can't fit in the current available space, the WPF TabControl shows next and previous buttons so users can scroll through excess tabs.

New Tab Page

Just like your Web browser, the WPF TabControl includes built-in support for a new tab item with a uniform look and feel with the rest of the tabs. You simply listen to the event and provide the custom UI for the new tab.

Tab Menu for Quick Navigation

You can show all the items in a menu, just like the tabs in Visual Studio. This is useful for when items don't fit in the available space so users can still quickly access all the pages.

Additional Features

Tab Alignment and Positions

Configure the tabs to display on the top, left, bottom, or right edge of the control. Align the tabs to the left, right or center. You can even adjust the tab overlap.

Pin and Close Tabs

Control whether the user can close tabs and where to show the close button. Additionally, show a pinned icon so users can keep any particular tab in view.

Customizable Appearance

You can change the background and tab colors without changing the rest of a tab's appearance. Just like all ComponentOne WPF controls, you can change control brushes without having to override templates.
