The option is equivalent to the TabButtonShowMode.WhenNeeded option.


The Close button is always displayed within the page header panel. The Prev and Next buttons are displayed when the XtraTabControl.MultiLine property is set to false.


Tab buttons are always hidden.


Tab buttons are automatically shown when the tab control’s width is insufficient to display all the page headers.

Individual tab pages can display their own Close buttons, as specified by the XtraTabControl.ClosePageButtonShowMode property.
