    Hi
    Is it possible to have the radtabstrip work in the same way as the normal windows tab control with its multiline property set to true.  We would like to be able to show all the tabs at once and have them wrap round inside the strip.

    Best regards

    Marek

    Hi Marek,

    Thank you for writing.

    RadTabStrip does not currently support this feature but we will consider adding it in the future. At this time, the only way to show more tabs at once without having to use scrolling is to set the ShrinkMode property of RadTabStrip to true.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact us.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Boyko,

    Does WinForms version Q2 2008 supports this feature?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello AD,

    Unfortunately we do not support this scenario yet. This feature has been in our TO DO list for a while, but we still can't manage to come to it.
    Could you please tell me how important it is for your application and some specific cases where the feature is applicable?

    Hello Boyko,

    thank you for your reply.

    It is very important to have it on my application. Right now I have too many tabs and the only solution would be the multiline property set to true. As an alternative solution I was trying to decrease the text characters of each tab, but it does not look very good. I will probably use the default 'ugly' tab control of Visual Studio.

    Please make sure that you include it on your next release.

    Hello AD,

    I've increased the priority of this feature, but I still can't give you a time frame when we will support it.
    I can only assure you that we will consider the Multiline feature of RadTabStrip for the upcoming releases of RadControls for WinForms.

    Despite the fact that we do not support the Multiline feature we support rich visual styles and theming of our controls. RadTabStrip has properties which manage the layout of each tab. You can change the orientation of text for example, or change the spacing between the individual tab items, the offset from the beginning. We have overflow functionality. ShrinkMode is also supported i.e if you have 10 tabs and there is no enough place to see all of them if the ShrinkMode property is true the tabs would shrink. You can also change the  TabPosition property and align the tabs to Top, Bottom, Left or Right.

    If you have more questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Sincerely yours,

    We require the multiline feature in our project.
    Just wanted to know is there a workaround now for using multiline tabstrip.
    Even VS provides it.

    Hi Smitha Test,

    Thank you for writing. You can try using WrapText property of the TabItem TextPrimitive. Please, consider the following code-block:

    this.radTabStrip1.ShrinkMode = true;
    foreach (TabItem tab in this.radTabStrip1.Items)
    {
        tab.TextPrimitive.TextWrap = true;
    }

    Write me back if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks,

    This resolved my problem of tabitems overflow.
    I shall wait for multiline tab in the next release.
