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


The tab control’s header can display Close, Next and Prev buttons. The XtraTabbedMdiManager.HeaderButtons property specifies which of these buttons are available, and the HeaderButtonsShowMode property specifies when these buttons are available.

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