Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v20.2.dll


public TabContentCacheMode TabContentCacheMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A TabContentCacheMode enumerator value that specifies the DXTabControl‘s tabs cache mode.

Available values:

Name Description

Tabs caching is disabled.


All the DXTabControl‘s tabs are simultaneously cached after the DXTabControl is loaded and shown.


DXTabControl‘s tabs are cached only after they have been selected by an end-user.


By default, the DXTabControl does not cache its tabs. If you set the TabContentCacheMode to TabContentCacheMode.CacheAllTabs, all the DXTabControl‘s tabs will be loaded and cached simultaneously after the DXTabControl is shown. This can significantly speed up navigation between tabs, but will consume more memory.

You can manually set the TabContentCacheMode property to TabContentCacheMode.CacheTabsOnSelecting. In this case, a tab will be cached only after it was selected.

Specify the TabContentCacheMode property value before the DXTabControl is loaded. Changing the TabContentCacheMode property value in runtime has no effect.
