Can someone tell me how to stop a user from changing tabs in a TabbedMDIManager. Thanks Chris

you could maybe check the Activating event for the window and then .Activate() the previous window. You''d have to store somewhere which window was ''current'' and this could be kinda clumsy especially if you close windows. There may or may not be a more elegant way of doing this and even if this is the only way you may get an unpleasant flicker. -simon

Is there any way of using the MDITabPanel to stop this from happening? I’ve looked at the methods and there’s nothing that stands out. You get access to it by: MDITabPanel tp = this.tabbedMDIManager.TabGroupHosts[0].MDITabPanel

I''ve worked it out :-), you need to use the enabled property on the MDITabPanel control. This is done as follows: if(this.tabbedMDIManager.TabGroupHosts.Length > 0) { MDITabPanel tp = this.tabbedMDIManager.TabGroupHosts[0].MDITabPanel; tp.Enabled = !tp.Enabled; } When the control is disabled then the user will not be able to change tabs.
