Tab control styles



    In VB 2008 Express does the tab control that is used in the Start Page exist (included) for use in windows form design?  Also are these frame available?



    Or just the old Forms 2.0 Tab control?

  • stryker72,


    According to your question on the Tab Control Style, I would like to suggest you to create the custom TabControl and Draw the necessary style on your demand.


    I would like to provide you several examples according to the different development ways:


    1. TabStrips: A TabControl in the Visual Studio 2005 way!


    A TabControl in the Visual Studio 2005 style, which supports correct Right-To-Left (RTL) and Left-To-Right (LTR) drawing.


    2. A .NET Flat TabControl (CustomDraw)


    This is a CustomDraw TabControl that appears flat and supports icons and is filled with the backcolor property.


    3. You can consider to create the WPF project with the example TabControl Overview in MSDN article.


    Hope that helps.
