Remarks

If the MultiLine property is set to ‘False’ or ‘Default’, only one row of tabs is displayed - even if all the page headers don’t fit in the available space. In this case navigation buttons are displayed which allow end-users to scroll the tab pages.

XtraTabControl_MultiLine_False

Otherwise, if this property is set to ‘True’ multiple rows of tab headers are displayed if the page headers don’t fit the available space. In this case the XtraTabControl.HeaderAutoFill property can be set to ‘True’ so that the tab headers are automatically stretched to fill the empty space in a tab row as shown in the image below:

XtraTabControl_MultiLine_True
