How do I implement a ContextMenu (Syncfusion''s or WinForm''s) that only pops up when right clicking the TabPage Header , not the TabPage itself like in VS2003/2005.

Hi Max,

Thanks for using Essential Tools.

You have to get selected tab header bounds using GetTabRect method and show the winforms context menu if the mouse up occurs inside the tab rect.

private void tabControlAdv1_MouseUp(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
Rectangle rect = this.tabControlAdv1.GetTabRect(this.tabControlAdv1.SelectedIndex);
Point pt = new Point(e.X ,e.Y);
this.contextMenu1.Show(this.tabControlAdv1, pt);

I have attached a sample. Please refer to it and let me know if this helps you.
