Tabcontrol tabpagebutton orientation

P: n/a
Does anyone know, if it's possible to set the orientation of the
tabpagebuttons to horizontal instead of vertical when the alignment property
of my tabcontrol is set to left or right?

Thanks in advance

If I understand you correctly, you are looking to display the tabs on the left or right sides but have the tab's (where the name resides) display their text horizotally
essentially. This is a good idea...and I am sure their are some "custom" built controls out there that do this...or you can create your own (looks to be some work here)

If I am able to find a solution for you I will repost it here...

BTW - I will log a bug to add support for such a feature...in the future...Thanks for bringing up this usability issue.

Hi, how can I show the tabs at the bottom of the TabControl instead of on top?

Sorry I have not gotten back to this thread in a while.

If you look at the tabcontrol properties in the Properties window, you will find a property call "Alignment". It has the options for Top/Bottom/Left/Right. By setting it to
Bottom you will find the tabs show up at the bottom of the control. Hopefully this was what you are asking...

As far as the previous thread/question...I was not able to find you an easy solution. A custom control is going to be the way to get this done...

Hope this helps.
