Hi there,

I've updated from to Now, the layout (style) in the tabstrip changed. I am using Office2007LunaBlue layout. In this layout, you have a background-image for active tabs, but unfortunately not for disabled tabs. There, the background-color is shown. Not so nice, this layout. See attachments for clarification. How/where can I set the (which?) background-image for disabled tabs or where can I disable the background-image for active tabs?

Hi Sascha,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Product.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. The Office2007 LunaBlue theme for TabStrip in v6.3.0.8 has been to changed to Office2007 Blue in v6.4.0.15 and the only difference is, it displays item text color in blue when it is made disabled.

So as a workaround to display text color as gray when it is disabled and as same as like in v6.3.0.8, please refer the below link for sample files.

Please let me know if this sample helps you.

Thank you for the answer. I copied the css file and the images to my project, added the corresponding css-properties into the aspx-file, erased the autoformat-property and ran it.
Well, it is nearby that what I am looking for. Nearby means: suddenly there are grey tab-images shown for the left- and righthandside corner. I wasn't able to get rid of them. Can you give me a hint (see atts).

btw: per default for disabled items the cursor "default" should be shown instead of "pointer", that's more intuitive (I changed it in this css).

Have a nice weekend

Hi Sascha,

I am unable to reproduce this issue and we have tested the sample using your 'SyncfusionTabstrip.css' file with success and also found that in the attached screen shot, the left and rightsides of Tabstrip referring some other images as like in Separators Theme. So could you please check this and also please refer the below link for sample files which contains the images and css file are in a folders.

Please let me know if you have any other concerns.

Hi Rekha,

the separator-theme brought the solution: showseparators was set to true... set it to false, everything was ok. Sorry for that inconvenience.
