Is it possible to have a Close-button at the upper right corner next to ScrollButtons? (Just like it's done in VS.NET and when using the TabbedMDIManager).
Also, is there a way to have the ScrollButtons shown all the time, being disabled if there isn't enough tabs...

You can make the scroll button visible all the time, by subclassing the TabControlExt and overriding this method, as follows:
protected override void AdjustScrollButtonDimensions(ref RectangleF tabPanelBounds, bool scrollNeeded)
if(this.ScrollButtons == null && !this.Multiline)
// Second arg should be true all the time. base.AdjustScrollButtonDimensions(ref tabPanelBounds, true);
We do not have built-in support for a close button in the tab control. I will make this a feature request. If you are interested, you can look at our custom tab control implementation used in our tabbed mdi layout in the file Tools\src\FrameworkComponents\TabbedMDI\MDITabPanel, to get some hints on how to implement this yourself.

Another, approach is to simply place a button over the tab control at the right position.
