Flat Tab Samples are Not Working

Hello, I have been using a tab, based on your FlatTabs and this has been working fine, until I switched to Version 3. I have also noticed that the Flat Tab samples that are provided (C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Suite\3.0.1.0\Windows\Tools.Windows\Samples\Tabs Package\Advanced\FlatTabs) with version 3, also no longer work. Have you got any ideas what the problem maybe? Thanks, David.

Hi David, If you are not able to switch tabs at runtime, you could resolve this by setting the following property to true : tabControlAdv1.FocusOnTabClick = true; Let me know if this does not help. We will also set this property to TRUE by default in our future releases. We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Hello, Setting the tabControlAdv1.FocusOnTabClick to true allows me to switch between the tabs, but it now displays a dashed rectangle on the selected tab. I thought the reason why the FocusOnTabClick was set to false was to hide or not show the rectangle. Is there another way to not display this dashed rectangle? Thanks, David.

I thought the reason why the FocusOnTabClick was set to false was to hide or not show the rectangle. Is there another way to enable the tabs to switch, without having to set the focus to true? Thanks, David.

Hi David, To prevent the focus rectangle from being drawn you''ll need to handle the DrawItem event from the TabControlAdv. You''ll then need to mark the Tab be drawn as if it wasn''t focused. The following code snippet will do that for you: private void TabControlAdv_DrawItem(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DrawTabEventArgs drawItemInfo) { // To indicate that the tab gets drawn as if it’s not focused (without the focus rect). drawItemInfo.State &= ~DrawItemState.Focus; // Then forward drawing to default drawing logic. drawItemInfo.DrawBackground(); drawItemInfo.DrawInterior(); drawItemInfo.DrawBorders(); } Regards, Gregory Austin Syncfusion, Inc.
