    Hello,

    When you disable the RadTabItem, you disable all its ControlTemplate elements and the tooltip of the control as well. I am not sure what you need to implement, but it's best to reconsider your implementation and choose another approach.

    ya i too noticed that, but it will be good if it was included in future version, because the end-user who are using the application need to know why the Tab was disabled (we can say that in tooltip)

    Hi,

    I also think the tooltip is useful in your case. However, in Silverlight disabled elements do not show its tooltips by design.
    You could workaround the issue by disabling the contents of the tab item (header and content) and restricting the selection. The point is to leave the item enabled and disable the contents except for some transparent element holding the tooltip.
    Another approach would be to manually place the tooltip over the disabled tab item.

    All the best,
