How to set the Close button for active tab or all the tab items in the WinForms TabControlAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TabControlAdv

CloseButton settings

In TabControlAdv, Close button appearance can be customized by using its property ShowTabCloseButton and ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly.

ShowTabCloseButton - To show Close button for all TabPageAdv’s in TabControlAdv.

ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly - To show Close button for active TabPageAdv in TabControlAdv.

The following code example is to demonstrate the same.


//Show Close button for all the tab item
this.tabControlAdv1.ShowTabCloseButton = true;
this.tabControlAdv1.ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly = false;
//Show Close button for Active tab item
this.tabControlAdv1.ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly = true;
this.tabControlAdv1.ShowTabCloseButton = true;


'Show Close button for all the tab item
Me.tabControlAdv1.ShowTabCloseButton = True
Me.tabControlAdv1.ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly = False
'Show Close button for Active tab item
Me.tabControlAdv1.ShowCloseButtonForActiveTabOnly = True
Me.tabControlAdv1.ShowTabCloseButton = True



For both the cases, set ShowTabCloseButton to true.
