The WPF Tab Control provides an efficient interface for displaying multiple tabs and helps arrange content in a compact and organized form in less space. It provides powerful data-binding support for tab headers and content. It also provides different tab orientations, text alignment, options to hide or create new tabs, editable headers, and complete customization options.
WPF TabControl provides powerful data binding to display tab headers and content. It allows you to design the application in an MVVM pattern such as binding selected items.
Position the tabs horizontally at the top or bottom and vertically at the left or right. Rotate the header text in a vertical TabControl.
Close tabs interactively in the UI. Display a close button for each tab like Visual Studio document tabs and also a common close button.
Supports pinning favorite tabs for quick access and allows users to interactively pin and unpin the tabs.
Select tabs quickly through keyboard and mouse interaction. Display all the tabs in the drop-down, like in Visual Studio, for switching among the tabs quickly when the tabs overflow the available space.
Bring the overflow tabs into view through scroll options in the UI and swipe in a touch environment. Also scroll to the next, previous, first, and last tabs.
Customize the style of each individual part of the WPF TabControl, such as its header style. Provides a rich set of built-in themes inspired by popular interfaces such as Visual Studio, Microsoft Office, and Expression Blend.
Reorder tabs by dragging and dropping headers.
Edit tab headers interactively in the UI by pressing the F2 function key or double-clicking on a tab header.
WPF TabControl allows to arrange tab items in single or multiple rows.
Built-in context menu options allow you to close the current tab, close other tabs except selected, and close all the tabs, similarly to the context menu options in Visual Studio.
Add new tabs dynamically like adding new sheets in Microsoft Excel. Allows users to arrange new button in the UI at first or last position.
You can add images to the tab item headers.
The WPF TabControl supports localization to translate the static text in the context menu to any desired language.
WPF TabControl’s right-to-left support helps you develop applications for worldwide audiences.

Syncfusion WPF TabControl provides the following:
We do not sell the WPF TabControl separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion WPF suite, which contains over 100 WPF controls, including TabControl. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for WPF suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
No, our 100+ WPF controls, including TabControl, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their TabControl alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100+ WPF controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.
No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.
A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
