Stopping tab activation when right clicking...

Is there any way to stop the TabControlAdv control activating the tab a user r clicks on... Typically we have a close menu on this and its annoying that it first brings the tab to the foreground....

Hi Peterainbow, You could do so by handling the TabControlAdv''s SelectedIndexChanging event as shown in the code snippet below : private void tabControlAdv1_SelectedIndexChanging(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.SelectedIndexChangingEventArgs args) { if (Control.MouseButtons == MouseButtons.Right) args.Cancel = true; } Please refer to the complete sample attached here, and let me know if this works for you.

Yep that worked, i found the following useful hitTabIndex = tabControl.HitTestTabs(tabControl.PointToClient(Cursor.Position)); to find which tab was being hit.... Might be nice in future iterations of the tools to have r click activation as a style property
