Hi guys,

Having just upgraded to Version we have found some code that previously worked with Version 6 no longer functions.

We use the docking manager to display tabs for user controls added at runtime. When a control is added we call
ShowTabCloseButton = true and ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly = true on the tab control to make the cross button appear on the individual tabs when they have focus.

This no longer works as the attached example proves. Please follow step by step instructions in the attached word doc in the zip file along with the code.

Hi Matt,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

We are able to see the mentioned issue when closing tab in DockTabControl. We have logged bug report for the same and the fix will be available in the next release. Thank you for bringing this issue to us.

Let me know if you have any further concerns.

Please can you provide a work around in the mean time, we cannot wait for the next release to have a fix for code that has been regressed.

Having upgraded to fix an issue removing controls from the docking manager, it is very frustrating to see that we encounter further issues in the same area.

Many Thanks

Matt Speller
