    Hi ,

    I am missing something I dono but I got a scenario where I have multiple  tab Documents opened ,here  I am using telerik docking control with multiple tabbed documents and I want to highlight the Tab on which the user is currently residing just like Microsoft visual studio or IE Browser where we can have multiple tabs but the tabs gets highlighted on which we are working from rest of the tabs.

       


    Thanks,
    Sandeep

    Hi sandeep,

    In RadDock, a selected tab will be highlighted automatically. Please have a look at the attached screenshot.
    If this is not what you meant, please let me know.
    thanks
    Richard

    Hi ,

    As you can see in the below image it is very hard to identify on which tab we are in is there any way to bold the text or back color.


    Thanks,
    Sandeep.

    Hello Sandeep,

    Please make sure you have the following property set
    Me.RadDock1.DocumentManager.BoldActiveDocument = True

    Hope that helps

    Hi,

    Don't worry. No questions are silly. Can I ask what version you are using of the controls? It sounds as though you are using an older version. For reference, the latest is Q3 2010.

    If you are using RadDock, then you should check out these links

    Hope that helps, but let me know if you need further help
    All the best
    Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks and it is true that the telerik controls we are using are not latest version. 


    Thanks,
    Sandeep.

    Hi Sandeep,

    I'm afraid I don't have the old version of hte controls to look into this for you. I would advise at looking to upgrade your subscription to the Telerik controls if you can. There are many enhancements, updates and new controls in the newer version and you will also find that you get quicker and more accurate support from forum users as most are now running the latest version.

    Regards,
    Richard

    Hello sandeep,

    Thank you for writing.

    Can you please share which version of our controls are you using? It will be even better if you can open a new support ticket and attach your project. This will allow me to investigate your case and provide you with further support.

    I am looking forward to your reply.
