item Object

A data item that corresponds to the required tab item.


Type Description

A DXTabItem object, that is a tab item corresponding to the specified data item; null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the specified data item does not exist.


Use the GetTabItem method to obtain a tab item, when tab control’s data items are not the DXTabItem type. This happens when the tab control is bound to a data source, or when its Items collection has been manually filled with arbitrary objects. In this instance, the GetTabItem method returns a DXTabItem object obtained from the specified data item, using the template specified by the ItemTemplate property.

To obtain a tab item by its index, use another overload of the GetTabItem method that takes the index parameter.
