public DataTemplateSelector TabCaptionTemplateSelector { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A DataTemplateSelector descendant that chooses a template based on custom logic.


A template that defines the tab caption’s presentation is specified by the TabCaptionTemplate property. If you have more than one template that can be used to render the layout item’s tab caption, you can implement custom logic to choose the required template. To do this, derive from the DataTemplateSelector class, implement the SelectTemplate method that returns a template which meets the required condition, and assign it to the TabCaptionTemplateSelector property.

If both the TabCaptionTemplate and TabCaptionTemplateSelector are specified, the layout item’s tab caption is rendered using the template returned by the template selector. If the template selector returns null, the template specified by the TabCaptionTemplate property is used.
