Hi Nethanel,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

You can use our TabControlAdv to create tabs in the dialog. Please refer the shipped sample from the below location that demonstrates on adding tabs.

..\Tools.Windows\Samples\2.0\Tabs Package\TabControlAdvDemo

Please let me know if this helps you.

Hi Jaya,

Thank you for response,

I've changed the sample slightly, to meet requirements of our product (right-to-left layout, tabs at right and text at left of images), see attached screenshot.
It looks almost perfect, how can I align first tab ("Appearnace") to top (as pink arrow points)? Also note blue ellipse that points to rounded tab's left-top edge, which IMHO should not be rounded (rounded should be right-bottom edge).

Thank you a lot for your assistance,

Hi Nethanel,

Sorry for the delayed response.

You can create custom tabcontrol using an owner-draw technique and deriving from default rendering-base classes. You can customize the tab border by overriding DrawBorders method.

Please refer the shipped sample from the below location on creating custom tabs.

..\Tools.Windows\Samples\2.0\Tabs Package\Custom Tab Controls

MSN like Tabcontrol with right alignment displays tabs on the top.

Please let me know if this helps you.
