Overview

The WPF TabControl 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.


Data binding

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.
