Hi,

is it possible to show the image only for special tabbed documents?
I know I can show the image for all tabbed documents with the property TabbedMdiWindowImagesVisible.
When I get me the TabStripPage instance for the TabbedMdiWindow an set the Image property there, it works until the tab page is repainted.

My only other guess is to create a descendant of the renderer, but that seems a little bit overkill. Isn't there an easier solution?


Best regards, Tobias Lingemann.

Hi Tobias,

I believe you'd want to set TabbedMdiWindowImagesVisible to true and then only set Image or ImageIndex properties on document windows that needed the images to show.  If you leave them their default values, no image should be rendered.

Yes, but when I press Ctrl+Tab the images would be displayed only for my "special" documents. So that would look weird if some have images and some don't.

I guess I just make my own TabRenderer. Seems to be the more convenient way, although I try to avoid to derive from 3rd party components.
