ASP.NET Tab Control Scrolling and Multi Line Layout (coming in v2010 vol 2)

Thinking Out Loud
12 August 2010

Two highly requested features for our ASP.NET Tab (Page) Control --Scrolling and Multi Line Layout -- will be made available in the next release of DXperience.

ASP.NET TAB Scrolling (navigation buttons on the left and right side of the control)

ASP.NET Tab Control Scrolling

ASP.NET TAB Scrolling (both navigation buttons on the right side of the control)

ASP.NET Tab Control Scrolling

Tab scrolling can be enabled by setting the EnableTabScrolling property to true. When active, if the control's size prevents all tabs from being visible within the tab header, scroll buttons will be displayed allowing end-users to scroll through the tab list. The TabAlign property determines the position of the scroll buttons (Left, Right, Center).

Mult line ASP.NET Tab Layout

ASP.NET Tab Control Multiline

The ASPxTabControl and ASPxPageControl can display tabs across multiple rows. The screenshot above illustrates how to paint the ASPxPageControl's tab header across two rows. To start a new line from a given tab, set the NewLine property of the required tab object to true. In this example, the "Data" tab page has its NewLine property set to true.

@Aleksey: I agree with you that this feature is worth enabling in XAF. It can greatly improve the usability of XAF Web UI. Please track a corresponding suggestion in this regard: www.devexpress.com/issue=S35484
