The format specified by the TabCaptionFormat property must follow the Composite Formatting rules. Typically, the format string contains the “{0}” string plus custom text. The “{0}” string is a placeholder for the item’s caption, specified by the BaseLayoutItem.TabCaption property. To learn more about formatting, see Composite Formatting in MSDN.

The following code shows how to create a format string that adds a colon after an item’s tab caption:
