Gets or sets whether tabs are displayed in multiple or single lines.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking2010.Views.Tabbed

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v19.1.dll


bool MultiLine { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true, if tabs are displayed in multiple lines; otherwise, false.


By default, tabs are displayed in single line. If the group width is insufficient to display all available tabs, navigation buttons are displayed. See the figure below.


It is also possible to display all available tabs simultaneously, arranging them into multiple lines. To enable this feature, set the MultiLine property to true.

tabbedView.DocumentGroupProperties.MultiLine = true;

The result is shown below.


If tabs are arranged in multiple lines, they are automatically stretched to fill the entire width of the group. To disable this feature, set the IDocumentGroupProperties.HeaderAutoFill to false.

The MultiLine setting is common to all groups in the current view. You can override this setting for a particular group with the IDocumentGroupDefaultProperties.MultiLine property.
