The 2019 Volume 2 release introduces exciting and cool new features for the WinForms TabbedForm control. In this blog, we are going to check out some of them that shipped with the 2019 Volume 2 release. They are:
- Tab navigation
- Tab reordering
- Context menu
- Right-to-left direction
The WinForms TabbedForm now includes support to navigate through tabs with simple, intuitive buttons. Using the extensible navigation modes, simple buttons can be loaded. These buttons can be customized and styled based on the intended users.
Navigation between Tabs Using Simple Buttons
Reordering the tabs is now possible by dragging and dropping them. You can move an active tab to the left or right by dragging the tab header using the mouse pointer.
Reordering Tabs in the TabbedForm
The WinForms TabbedForm now includes options to show menu items that appear when users right-click on the header of a tab. A browser-like context menu appearance can be provided using the extensible customization options. The context menu’s behavior and items can be customized for each tab.
