I need to initiate editing of tab label by code somehow. I have a context menu attached to the tab and when I choose "Edit caption" item from the menu, label shoul became editable, i.e. should be switched into the edit mode. After that user can type new label and apply changes in common way. The main thing I couldn't find a solution for is enabling of edit-mode by code.

Could you help me with this problem?

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

You can edit the Tab page label at runtime using the following property.

// Renaming TabControlAdv’s Text.
this.tabControlAdv.LabelEdit = true;

Here is the UG link which makes you clearer how to edit the label in Tabpage.


Please let me know if you need further assistance on this.

This is not exactly what I mean.
I need to bring the tab into the edit mode (not enable of editing as you described). I need to make something to bring the tab into the state like after double-click (label should be selected and editable) without clicking on mouse button.

Hi Artem,

Thank you for the update.

Regret for the inconvenience. Currently TabControlAdv does not have support to enable the Label edit through code.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Lingaraj S.
