I need to as much screen real estate as possible. Maximum columns and rows on the screen.

I want to turn off tabs completely and allow the user to navigate from menus.

Is there a way to turn off display of the tabs?

Thank you.

Hi Doug,

You can use MdiWindowListItem property of Menustrip for navigate the MdiForm and hide the tabs in TabbedMdi using Hide() or Visible property of MdiTabPanel in TabHost.

Here is the code snippet:

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.menuStrip1.MdiWindowListItem = windowToolStripMenuItem; // Sets the MdiForm list to the Menu item

TabHost[] tabhost=tabbedMdiManager1.TabGroupHosts;

if (tabhost != null)
// tabhost[0].MDITabPanel.Visible = false;

Let me know if this works.

It almost works. It does hide the tab. The space where the tab was is still there though. I need to get that back.

When I resize the the Form, the tab is redrawn.

Hi Doug,

You can use another approach for hiding the tabs to setting the visible property of TabbedMdiManager to false.



Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.
