Custom drawing of tabs

Docking/MDI for Windows Forms Forum

Posted 18 years ago by Thierry Bouchard

I'd like to know if it is possible to control the drawing of the tabs in a TabStrip control. Currently we can only set an image and some text, but I'd like to have control over what and how this stuff is displayed.

Thank you.

Absolutely... you can draw and measure EVERY aspect of the TabStrip control. All you have to do is implement your own renderer class and assign it to the TabStrip. You can inherit from TabStripRenderer and then override all the abstract methods.

That couldn't be clearer!

Thx for the quick reply
The latest build of this product (v24.1.0) was released 4 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
