we have a problem with the TabControlExt ItemTemplate.
We want to use a Property of our ViewModel (MVVM Style with PRISM) to show the Title of the TabItem.
But as we can see, the TabItem could not reach the properties of the TabControl content.
In the content we display view dynamically loaded.

Is there any option the get the properties or set the title by binding to the viewmodel presented in the content area?
In order to that problem, is there also an option to set the closing icon dynamically with a property of the viemodel?
Not all of our views should be closed by the user itself.

An example of the code:

<sf:TabControlExt x:Name="Tab"
                      prism:RegionManager.RegionName="{x:Static modinf:ModuleRegionNames.ModulPosteingangTabRegion}"
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=DataContext.ViewModelTitel}" />
We tried Content.DataContext., only Datacontext. and without.

Thanks and best regards

Hi Benjamin Siegmund,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have prepared a sample to meet your requirement. In the sample, we have bound the Header property of Model to TabItem Header using ItemContainerStyle property of TabControlExt. Using BoolToCloseTypeConverter and CanClose property in Model, we have changed the CloseButtonType of TabControlExt to avoid displaying close button for few tab items. You can download the sample for the same from the following location.

Sample: TabControlExt_Prism_Sample

If we have misunderstood your query, please get back to us with more details about your ​​​requirement. This would help us to provide solution at earliest.

Durga S.
