Tab Control and navigation buttons

P: n/a
I want to add navigation buttons to a tabcontrol (somewhat like excel)
How do I get the "tabs" to offset to the right so that I can draw the
buttons on the left?

TIA

It does in an indirect way.
You'll have to Hide the TabItems (An Alternative approach to TabPage
Navigation).
Add a second TabControl which is only the height of it's Tabitems and
position it directly above the main TabControl with an offset to allow your
Navigation buttons to be placed on the left.
Code the OnSelectedIndexChanged() event of the second TabControl to change
the TabPages of the first.
Alternatively, use a collection of buttons or a custom Toolbar for
navigation.
