Hi
I have enabled the overflow button on a tab strip and when selecting a tab from the dropdown list, the selected tabitem is moved to the start of the tabstrip control (position 0) rather than the tabstrip just being scrolled to the selected tab item and that being made visible.

Is there any way of preventing this from happening and just scrolling the selected tabitem into view?

Best regards

Marek

Hi Marek,

The current behavior of the overflow button mimics VS2005 behavior, which however is deferent than IE7. Now that we think of it, our approach may not be the most usable one, and end users may expect the tabstrip to scroll to the selected tab.

We will consider adding support for scrolling into view in a future release. Currently there is no workaround I could suggest for preventing this behavior.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.


Kind regards,

Hi,
I was hoping that when I select a tab using the overflow drop down it would select the tab in the first position (0) as described above. However, this is not happening and the tab that is selected is not visible at all.  Is there a way to get this to work? 
Thanks,
Nik

Hi Nik,

I agree with you. We will consider scrolling into view to be the default behavior of the overflow. You can use the alternative overflow behavior, which could be activated using the following syntax:

this.radTabStrip2.TabStripElement.TabStripOverFlowBehavior = Telerik.WinControls.UI.TabStrip.OverFlowBehavior.BringIntoView;

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please write me back.

Sincerely yours,
