    I am new to RadControls.

    In my code base, I have created a tabstrips and an "Add Tab" button. 
    I have also set scroll property of Tabstrip to allow scrolling.

    On click of the "Add Tab" button I programmatically add a new tab item to the tabstrip and select it. However, I cannot get focus on the newly added tab.
    If the count of tabs grows, I need to scroll to the added tab.

    Is there some way by which at the time of selecting a tab I also set focus on it?

    Any help shall be appreciated.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Hi Era,

    Thank you for writing.

    We have already implementd programmatic scrolling to a desired tab in the RadTabStrip. It will be a part of our Q1 2008 release, due in mid-April. Currently, I could suggest adding a new tab at the first position. In this way, it will always be visible.

    Please take a look at code-block below as reference:

    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)  
        TabItem tab = new TabItem(String.Format("Tab{0}",this.radTabStrip1.Items.Count + 1));  
        this.radTabStrip1.Items.Insert(0, tab);  
        this.radTabStrip1.SelectedTab = tab;  

    I hope this helps. If you have additional question, do not hesitate to contact me again.

    Sincerely yours,
