i'm making a web browser with a pin tab function,
now when i add 2 tab pages at once it only add an text to the selected one and i have to refresh the browser to add the text to the other one(when selected it).

how do i fix that problem so when i add two tabpages it sets the text to the webpage title which is in the tab page(like chrome or any other browser)

What is a "pin tab function"?
Are you using System.Windows.Forms.TabControl or what? Just look at the documentation thoroughly...

1. to let the users pin their tabs so it opens (they have pin it) when app close and the restarts(like chrome)
2. sorry i don't mentioned it it is the supertabcontrol from devcomponents.dotnetbar
1) I am not familiar with pinning of tabs; as far I can understand it, I don't like the concept very much, as I think it is redundant. You can provide the options of saving all tabs; if the user don't want to save some of them, she/he can remove them.

2) I don't know why would you use 3rd-part tab control if you already have one in FCL which works quite well; if this is a proprietary commercial control, why won't they support you?

I've searched their documantairy but couldn't find anything
What, don't they support their users? And what's wrong with TabControl?

Ok. With the dotnetbar supertabcontrol you can hav diferent tabpage size ( more than what you can achief with itemsize)
And with a webbrowser you can add a icon to the tabpage( and not with a 20 line code just 1) and a simple close button wich you can put on lets say 5 of the 10 tabpages or 1 of the 10 so just on the ones you want(again like google chrome if you pinned their tabs)
And the dotnetbar supports the metroappform(no titlebar but a ribboncontrol as titlebar) all in all its just more you van do than with the standard visual studio things
