Views Overview

The tab control's layout, style and behavior settings are defined by View objects that are represented by the TabControlViewBase descendant classes. Each View has its own layout and behavior.

Expanded Common Functionality

The TabControlViewBase class provides basic functionality that is common for all views.

  • Customizing Header Location

    The DXTabControl uses the Header Panel as a container to display tab header items.

    The position of the Header Panel can be specified using the TabControlViewBase.HeaderLocation property.

  • Header Menu

    Use the Header Menu to navigate through tab header items (including hidden or disabled items). To learn more, see Header Menu.

  • Hide and New Buttons

    End-users can also manage tab items by using the Hide and New Buttons. To learn more, see Adding and Removing Tab Items.

Expanded TabControlViewBase descendants

There are three types of TabControlViewBase descendant classes.

Expanded View Applying
