public override ITemplate ActiveTabTemplate { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
ITemplate null

An object supporting the System.Web.UI.ITemplate interface which contains the template.


Use the ActiveTabTemplate property to define a common content for the current tab control’s active tab. The template created using this property replaces the active tab’s content - in particular, the image and text associated with the tab.

Note that any style settings defined for the active tab via specific properties (such as the ASPxTabControlBase.ActiveTabStyle or TabBase.ActiveTabStyle) are still in effect for the tab whose contents are specified through using the ActiveTabTemplate property.

To define the content of a particular tab in the active state, use the tab’s Tab.ActiveTabTemplate property.


Once a template defined via the ActiveTabTemplate property is created within a tab control, it is instantiated within a container object of the TabControlTemplateContainer type. This container object exposes a set of specific properties to which the template’s child controls can be bound.
