I am using Tab control in my application. At design time I am not moving on different tab item but at run time its work. It always comes on first tab. Is there any property of tabcontrol that I have to set?
XML
<Window x:Class="DLL_TEACHER.Window1"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    Title="Teacher"  Height="700" Width="1300">
    <Canvas Width="1249">
        <Image Canvas.Left="0" Canvas.Top="0" Height="71" Name="image1" Stretch="Fill" Width="120" Source="D:\Software Development\vishal_wpf\vishal_WPF\DLL_2008_WPF\DLL_TEACHER\DLL_TEACHER\Images\logo.jpg" />
        <TabControl Canvas.Left="0" Canvas.Top="77" Height="572"  Width="1252"  Name="tabControl1">
            <TabItem Header="Student Status" Name="tabItem1" >
                this is one
            </TabItem>
            <TabItem Header="Lesson Assignment" Name="tabItem2" >
                this is two
            </TabItem>
            <TabItem Header="Lesson Preperation" Name="tabItem3" >
                <Grid>
                </Grid>
            </TabItem>
            <TabItem Header="Saved Lesson" Name="tabItem4" >
                <Grid>
                </Grid>
            </TabItem>
            <TabItem Header="chat" Name="tabItem5" >
                <Grid>
                </Grid>
            </TabItem>
        </TabControl>
    </Canvas>
</Window>

Nothing says SP1 not installed. IsSelectected is not used in XAML.

Actually OP wants to switch tabs just like forms tab at design time by mouse click. That was a known bug and taken care in SP1. You set it selected in XAML is a work around for that.

Well, where the selection is supposed to be without IsSelected before fix and after fix?

It is all about "tab clicked should be brought to front, even at design time"

I understand: a design mode only bug, failure to select. I never saw it. I already voted 5.
My last question is: does it mean other tabs were inaccessible even for adding controls "by mouse" before the fix?

You'are asking about the property. You can use System.Windows.Forms.TabControl.SelectedIndex.
