public bool AcceptsTab { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to allow tabulation characters to be accepted and processed by the editor; otherwise, false.


If the AcceptsTab property is set to true, the TAB key is processed by the editor, and results in a tabulation. Otherwise, if the AcceptsTab property is set to false, tabulation characters are ignored. However, these characters can be inserted in code by adding appropriate characters (for instance, “\t” for C#) to the TextEditBase.Text property.
