How can I Rename tabs programmatically on the right click context menu like Excel ?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TabbedMDIManager |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |

This can be achieved by deriving custom TabbedMDIManager. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:

C#

MyMDITabPanel mtab;

private void tabbedMDIManager_TabControlAdded(object sender, TabbedMDITabControlEventArgs args)

{

args.TabControl.LabelEdit=true;

mtab=(MyMDITabPanel)args.TabControl;

}

private void bi_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

{

mtab.StartEdit();

}

//Deriving custom TabbedMDIManager for renaming the tabs

public class MyTabbedMDIManager:TabbedMDIManager

{

protected override MDITabPanel CreateMDITabPanel()

{

return new MyMDITabPanel(this);

}

}

public class MyMDITabPanel:MDITabPanel

{

public MyMDITabPanel(TabbedMDIManager tmm):base(tmm)

{

}

public void StartEdit()

{

StartLabelEdit();

}

}

VB

Dim mtab As MyMDITabPanel

Private Sub tabbedMDIManager_TabControlAdded(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As TabbedMDITabControlEventArgs)

args.TabControl.LabelEdit=True

mtab=CType(args.TabControl, MyMDITabPanel)

End Sub

Private Sub bi_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

mtab.StartEdit()

End Sub

'Deriving custom TabbedMDIManager for renaming the tabs

Public Class MyTabbedMDIManager

Inherits TabbedMDIManager

Protected Overrides Function CreateMDITabPanel() As MDITabPanel

Return New MyMDITabPanel(Me)

End Function

End Class

Public Class MyMDITabPanel

Inherits MDITabPanel

Public Sub New(ByVal tmm As TabbedMDIManager) : MyBase.New(tmm)

End Sub

Public Sub StartEdit()

StartLabelEdit()

End Sub

End Class
