TabbedContainer Class

Presents items as tab pages with tab headers displayed at the top.

Namespace: DevExpress.UI.Xaml.Layout

Assembly: DevExpress.UI.Xaml.Layout.v18.2.dll

Declaration

public class TabbedContainer :
    ContentSelectorContainer,
    IDisposable,
    IContentSelector,
    ISelector
Public Class TabbedContainer
    Inherits ContentSelectorContainer
    Implements IDisposable,
               IContentSelector,
               ISelector

The TabbedContainer displays its elements (TabbedContainerItem objects) as tab pages. The TabbedContainerItem.Header property allows you to specify a tab header for each page.

TabbedContainer

In code, you can switch between tab pages via the veSelector.SelectedIndex inherited property. The currently selected item is specified by the veSelector.SelectedItem property.

Items can also be populated via the ItemsSource inherited property. To render these items, use the following templates and template selectors:

  • ItemTemplate and ItemTemplateSelector properties - Specify templates used to render item headers.
  • ContentTemplate and ContentTemplateSelector properties - Specify templates used to render item content.

Examples

This example creates a TabbedContainer with three tabs, each of which displays custom controls:
