How can I change the keyboard response for changing tab in the TabControl. I want it to conform to the Microsoft standard behaviour: Ctrl+PgDn -> Next Tab Ctrl+PgUp -> Previous tab Default behgaviour for the Syncfusion TabControl is the exact opposite.

Hi Illum, You could do so by deriving from the TabControlAdv and overriding its ProcessCmdKey method as shown in code below : public class CustomTabControlAdv : TabControlAdv { public CustomTabControlAdv () : base() {} protected override bool ProcessCmdKey(ref Message msg, Keys keyData) { if (keyData == (Keys.Control | Keys.PageUp)) { if (this.SelectedIndex > 0) this.SelectedIndex--; } else if (keyData == (Keys.Control | Keys.PageDown)) { if (this.SelectedIndex < (this.TabCount-1)) this.SelectedIndex++; } return true; } } The complete test sample illustrating this workaround is attached here. We appreciate your continued interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.
