TabControl for WinForms Updates

by viblend 3. May 2010 15:53

With version 4.6 of VIBlend Controls for WinForms, we introduced several rendering and functionality improvements and made the look and feel of VIBlend vTabControl fully customizable. You can easily add custom drawing by handling the DrawTabPage, DrawTabPageBackground and DrawTitleBackground events. The screenshot below is from our FlexibleStyling example (full source code available in C# and VB.NET):

We also added an easy way to customize the Font and Color settings of TabPage’s Header. Take a look at the code snippet and screenshot of a TabPage with green text color and bold font style.


vTabPage tabPage = this.vTabControl1.TabPages[0];
tabPage.UseThemeTextColor = false;
tabPage.UseDefaultTextFont = false;
tabPage.PressedTextColor = Color.Green;
tabPage.TextFont = new Font(tabPage.Font, FontStyle.Bold);
Dim tabPage As vTabPage = Me.vTabControl1.TabPages(0)
tabPage.UseThemeTextColor = False
tabPage.UseDefaultTextFont = False
tabPage.PressedTextColor = Color.Green
tabPage.TextFont = New Font(tabPage.Font, FontStyle.Bold)
