Hi Richard Koslik ,
If you need to prevent the Tab Selection in certain scenarios, have you considered using the PreviewSelectionChanged event of the RadTabControl. You can perform the validation you do in the LostFocus of the TextBox and set e.Handled to true in order to prevent the selection. Is this suitable for you?
