    Hello All,

    We are in the process of converting the plain old WPF TabControl with the RadTabControl.  We have a need to get the last tab that was selected before the user clicked a new tab.

    Using the WPF TabControl, in the EventArgs, there was an AddedItems and RemovedItems property.  In the RadTabControl, these do not exist.

    Is there a way to get the user's last selected TabItem using this handler?

    Hi Chris Andrews,

    You can use the RadTabControl PreviewSelectionChanged() event handler to get the last selected item:
    private void tabControl1_PreviewSelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
        IList prevSelectedItems = e.RemovedItems;
        IList newSelectedItems = e.AddedItems;

    I hope this information will help you.

    Sincerely yours,

    Thank you for the info.  I ended up using a different approach one of my co-workers found.  I am handling the SelectionChanged event and casting e as a RadSelectionChangedEventArgs object, which does have the Added and Removed items collection.

    Here is the code snippet for those interested:
    void TabControl_SelectionChanged(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        RadSelectionChangedEventArgs eArgs = e as RadSelectionChangedEventArgs;
        // We now have access to e.AddedItems and e.RemovedItems
