Is there a way to find out if a control is tabbed and which are its siblings?

Hi Bruno, There isn't an API to determine the tabbed state, but you can do so by directly accessing some of the internal docking windows classes. The following code tests whether the dockable control 'listBox1' is in a tabbed dock group, and if so, lists out all controls in that group. Trace.Assert(this.dockingManager1.GetEnableDocking(this.listBox2)); Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHost dhost = this.listBox2.Parent as Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHost; Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHostController dhc = dhost.InternalController as Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockHostController; if(dhc.ParentController is Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockTabController) { Trace.WriteLine("Control is docked as a tab"); Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockTabControl docktab = (dhc.ParentController as Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DockTabController).TabControl; foreach(DockTabPage tabpage in docktab.TabPages) { Control siblingcontrol = tabpage.dhcClient.HostControl.Controls[0]; Trace.WriteLine(siblingcontrol.Name); } } Prakash Syncfusion
