How to prevent the focus rect from being drawn in the tabs

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TabControlAdv |

You can easily do this by handling the DrawItem event, adjusting the DrawTabEventArgs as follows, and delegating drawing to the default drawing logic.

C#

private void TabControlExt_DrawItem(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DrawTabEventArgs drawItemInfo)

{

// To indicate that the tab gets drawn as if it’s not focused (without the focus rect).

drawItemInfo.State &= ~DrawItemState.Focus;

// Then forward drawing to default drawing logic.

drawItemInfo.DrawBackground();

drawItemInfo.DrawInterior();

drawItemInfo.DrawBorders();

}

VB

Private Sub TabControlExt_DrawItem(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal drawItemInfo As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DrawTabEventArgs)

' To indicate that the tab gets drawn as if it’s not focused (without the focus rect).

Dim & As drawItemInfo.State = ~DrawItemState.Focus

' Then forward drawing to default drawing logic.

drawItemInfo.DrawBackground()

drawItemInfo.DrawInterior()

drawItemInfo.DrawBorders()

End Sub
