Appearance Customization

In addition to the standard customization properties, DXTabControl and DXTabItem provide several extended capabilities to the style.

Expanded Colorized Tabs

The DXTabItem.BackgroundColor and DXTabItem.BorderColor properties allow you to specify the background color of the DXTabItem's header and the DXTabItem's border color.

An example illustrating how to use these properties is available in How to: Change Tab Background in DXTabControl and Keep the Default Gradient and Highlight Effects.

Expanded Custom Theming

You can define a custom theming mechanism without overriding the default theme's resources. You can do it by using the following properties.

An example illustrating how to use these properties is available in How to: Change the Tab Background in DXTabControl when a Tab Is Selected, Focused Or Hovered.

Expanded Customizable Areas

There are several customizable areas, which can be templated by using the following properties.

An example illustrating how to use these properties is available in How to: Customize DXTabControl's Content Header, Content Footer and Control Box Areas.
