    Hi there,

    I have a dynamic collection which I bind to the tab control, however, I would also like to be able to enable / disable the tabs based on some criteria, however, I am unsure of what to  bind to so I Can disable tabbing to the control.

    I followed your basic demo for binding to a collection please see code below

            <telerik:RadTabControl ItemsSource="{Binding People}" >
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"/>
                        <TextBlock Text="{Binding Age}"/>

    Hi Asela,

     Supposing you are following the approach demonstrated in this help article, you can introduce boolean property in the Person class:

    public class Person
         public Person(string name, int age)
             this.Name = name;
             this.Age = age;
         public string Name
         public int Age
         public bool Enabled { get; set; }
    and bind it to the IsEnabled property of the corresponding RadTabItems via StyleBindings:
               <local:ViewModel x:Key="DataSource" />
               <Style TargetType="telerik:RadTabItem">
                   <Setter Property="IsEnabled" Value="{Binding Enabled, Mode=TwoWay}" />
               <DataTemplate x:Key="ContentTemplate">
                       <TextBlock Text="{Binding Age}" />
    You can find this realized in the attached solution. Please let us know if this is what you need. Greetings,
