Hello,

I'm trying to use the property 'IsTabKeyboardSwitchingEnabled' of AdvancedTabControl but it is overriding the whole style of AdvancedTabControl.

My tabs actually looks like this :

My code is like this :

<docking:DockSite x:Uid="DockSite" x:Name="DockSite" Style="{StaticResource TabbedDockSiteStyle}">
        <docking:Workspace x:Uid="docking:Workspace_1">
            <docking:TabbedMdiHost
                x:Uid="docking:TabbedMdiHost_1"
                x:Name="TabbedMdiHost"
                TabStripPlacement="{Binding TabStripPlacement, Mode=TwoWay, Converter={StaticResource DockSideConverter}}"
                HasTabPinButtons="{Binding HasTabPinButtons}"
                EmptyContent="{Binding EmptyContent}"
                >
                <docking:TabbedMdiHost.EmptyContentTemplate>
                    <DataTemplate x:Uid="DataTemplate_1">
                        <adn:View x:Uid="adn:View_1" />
                    </DataTemplate>
                </docking:TabbedMdiHost.EmptyContentTemplate>
                <!-- <docking:TabbedMdiHost.TabControlStyle> -->
                <!--     <Style TargetType="docking:TabbedMdiContainerTabControl"> -->
                <!--         <Setter Property="IsTabKeyboardSwitchingEnabled" Value="False" /> -->
                <!--         <Setter Property="IsTabKeyboardAccessEnabled" Value="False" /> -->
                <!--     </Style> -->
                <!-- </docking:TabbedMdiHost.TabControlStyle> -->
            </docking:TabbedMdiHost>
        </docking:Workspace>
    </docking:DockSite>

If I apply the code commented, the keyboard switching is well disabled but the style goes like this :

How can I achieve what I want then ?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Does it pull in the correct appearance if you add this to your Style element?

BasedOn="{StaticResource {x:Type docking:TabbedMdiContainerTabControl}}"

Hi,

This looks promising but unfortunately doesn't work.

My IDE says that the resource can't be found :

Hi Kevin,

Odd, adding the attribute I mentioned worked for me in Visual Studio ok.  It should be telling it to base the Style on the default Style for that type.  Really that should be happening anyhow though, even with specifying a BasedOn.

Can you give more detailed information about where and how you defined the alternate Style to get the original look you wanted?

Thanks for your help on this.

Here is the full code of the page. I'm using Rider as an IDE.

As you will see, the code is using an external file as resources. So you will find also that file just after.

Ok, nevermind, in fact, it was more complicated than this because I had a parent DockSite that would override eveything.

I just change the property on the parent and eveything goes well !

Thanks for your help.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
