We would like to have an animation when reordering tabitems in a tabcontrol.
This should preferably look somewhat like reordering tabpages in browsers as chrome or
internet explorer.

is there an example of how to define an animated tabitem sliding to the left or right?
or something like a how-to document?

kind regards,

Gerrit Menkveld

Hi Gerrit,
Unfortunately there's no straightforward way to enable dragging animations in the RadTabControl, but if you want you could try to use our DragDropManager and manually create them.
I've attached a sample project which shows one way to do this so could you please examine it and if you have further questions feel free to ask.

The test app it's in SL5, I changed to Sl4 and for me It doesn't work.
When I start a drag it's handled by OnDragInit () by when I got to another tab it doens't work.
What happend with the example?

Hi Jesús,

I updated the solution to target SL4 and it works as expected on our side. Let me know if you experience any issues on your side with the updated solution.

Good work and simple solution!

Just a question... when index switch is performed, remove/insert of dragged item causes unload/reload of tab content... any hint to solve this issue? In my application, reloading tab content will cause useless queries to be executed (and  a busy indicator will be shown during drag :( )...

thanks in advance

Hello Paolo,

Unfortunately the Insert/Remove operations are the only approach for implementing this scenario. This is why there are no workarounds for the reload of the tabs content.
