How can I drag and drop TabPages between TabControls?

Platform: WinForms| Category: TabControl

The following code snippet shows how you can drag a TabPage from TabControl1 and drop it into TabControl2 (whose AllowDrop property must be set to True):


[C#]
Source TabControl
private void tabControl1_MouseMove(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
{
 if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)
 {
   this.tabControl1.DoDragDrop(this.tabControl1.SelectedTab,DragDropEffects.All);
 }
}

//Target TabControl
private void tabControl2_DragEnter(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs e)
{
 if(e.Data.GetDataPresent(typeof(TabPage)))

 {
	e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Move;
 }
   else
	e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None;
}

private void tabControl2_DragDrop(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs e)
{
 TabPage DropTab = (TabPage)(e.Data.GetData (typeof(TabPage)));
 this.tabControl2.TabPages.Add (DropTab);
}

[VB.NET]

’Source TabControl
Private  Sub tabControl1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)
 If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
   Me.tabControl1.DoDragDrop(Me.tabControl1.SelectedTab,DragDropEffects.All)
 End If
End Sub
 
’Target TabControl
Private  Sub tabControl2_DragEnter(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs)
 If e.Data.GetDataPresent(Type.GetType(TabPage)) Then
	e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Move
 Else 
	e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None
 End If
End Sub
 
Private  Sub tabControl2_DragDrop(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs)
 Dim DropTab As TabPage = CType((e.Data.GetData(Type.GetType(TabPage))), TabPage)
 Me.tabControl2.TabPages.Add (DropTab)
End Sub
