Hi,

I have to dynamically create a RadTabStrip control inside form (form MDI application).
I used this code:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTabStrip radTabStrip = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadTabStrip();

radTabStrip.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(((int)(((byte)(191)))), ((int)(((byte)(219)))), ((int)(((byte)(254)))));
radTabStrip.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabItem t1 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabItem("Tab 1");
Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabItem t2 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabItem("Tab 2");
Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabItem t3 = new Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabItem("Tab 3");

radTabStrip.Items.AddRange(new Telerik.WinControls.RadItem[] { t1, t2, t3 });

t1.ContentPanel.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
t2.ContentPanel.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;
t3.ContentPanel.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;

Button b1, b2, b3;
b1 = new Button(); b2 = new Button(); b3 = new Button();
b1.Text = "Bottone 1"; b2.Text = "Bottone 2"; b3.Text = "Bottone 3";
t1.ContentPanel.Controls.Add(b1);
t2.ContentPanel.Controls.Add(b2);
t3.ContentPanel.Controls.Add(b3);

radTabStrip.TabsPosition = Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabPositions.Bottom;

this.Controls.Add(radTabStrip);
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This code works, but the control isn't displayed fine! In particular tab buttons are not displayed as they are displayed when i use designer to create RadTabStrip.

What is the best way to solve my problem?
Thank you very much for support.

Hello Lorenzo,

Could you provide more detail on the tab buttons not visible?

I've tested your code and it works fine. I've only noticed that the theme is not applied. Could you try to place the following code before you call the Add method of the controls collection:

radTabStrip.BeginInit();
radTabStrip.EndInit();

I hope this helps. Please contact us again, if we could be of further assistance.

Hi,

Just want to recommend adding a dynamic tab with dynamic controls sample to the tabStrip documentation that actually adds controls to the tab strip dynamically.  This post is the only code I found that gave me a clue.  All the included samples only manipulate the tabStrip tabs, but do not show how to access the content panel to manipulate controls.
