When FocusOnTabClick is false and when you click on a tab no focus change will happen, which ever control had the focus before will retain the focus and the focus rect will not be visible. Try this in our sample too. If you don't see this happen, let me know what version you are using? Eval or licensed? Regards, Praveen

i found the problem in fact, if the tab control get first the focus, even if you set FocusOnTabClick = false, the focus vould be shown when you select a tab. try it, set TabIndex = 0 , the focus is there:-) thanks for your help i love your components

Yes, you can still tab into the tab control when FocusOnTabClick is false. You probably need to set TabStop to false to prevent it from getting focus on tab. -Praveen
