I'm trying to make a form with tabs like in the attached screenshot named 'ESET NOD32 Antivirus.png'. I already have it working like in the screenshot named 'Add Geospatial data.png'.
My questions are:
  1. How to align the image and text on the tab to the left, now they are centered.
  2. I also want the first tab to not be at the top, but a bit lower
  3. Inactive tabs should be white and the active tab gray with a white triangle at the end
  4. How to disable a tab, the last two are not yet ready so I want to disable them but they should still be visible.

Hi Paul Meems,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products,

We would like to let you know that currently we don't have the support for achieving your requirement in TabControlAdv. We would like to let you know that the requirement can be achieved by overriding the tabcontrol and using custom render. Please make use of the attached sample customize according to your requirement. Regarding the image and text alignment, please set the Text alignment property as 'near'. Please have the sample and let us know if it helps you.

Thanks for the sample.
I'm investigating it now and it looks great.
I'll try to adjust it to my needs.
