Close button on tabs instead of at the end of the tabstrip?

Is there a way to do this yet in UIStudio? If not, how hard would it be to implement a custom renderer to do this? Do you have code that we could start from for our custom renderer, so we aren't completely reinventing the wheel?

Thanks,
Kelly

Hi Kelly,

Sorry not at this time. You may be able to do it with a custom renderer although achieving the mouseover effect could be tough when the mouse is over the button.

Sure we could give you a copy of a built-in renderer if you write us an email.

OK... We were planning on moving to the WPFStudio docking anyway, so I'll just add this to the list of things we should do when we make the move. After looking at the custom renderer it seems I'd have to somehow handle the mouse events differently too, since it will only ask me to render the close button once, I imagine, and I wouldn't know where to put it :)

Right, you could possibly insert a UIElement using the WinUICore framework that does the button rendering. It would be low level and the trick would be getting the UIElement that represents the tab since right now it's internal.

But if you are moving to WPF, our WPF docking product already has the close buttons built-in via an option.

Is this still true?  This cannot be done without doing some customer rendering?

Hi Mike,

Yes, the same as above is true at this time.
