Object Type Path to AllowFocusTabbedGroups


If this property is set to true a tabbed group's header can receive focus through the TAB key or when it's clicked by a mouse. When a tab page header is focused, pressing the Left and Right Arrow buttons allows an end-user to iterate through tab pages.

If the AllowFocusTabbedGroups property is set to false, the headers of tabbed groups cannot be focused.

Note that if both the AllowFocusTabbedGroups and OptionsFocus.AllowFocusControlOnActivatedTabPage properties are set to true clicking a tab page header moves focus to the header, but not to the first focusable control within the tab page. If the CTRL+TAB shortcut is pressed within a tab page the following tab page is opened. Its header, however, is not focused even if the AllowFocusTabbedGroups property is set to true.
