What I want to do is that when I maximize the WPF window the TabControl should also be responsive with the WPF window. But in the following code the TabControl does not become responsive


What I have tried:

this my Xaml code:-

XML
<Window x:Class="Display3DModel.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

Do not use fixed sizes like:
XML
Height="554"

Let the TabControl fit the parent container content area.

UPDATE

I put your XAML (with the helix control removed) in my sample app and made a couple of tweaks and is now responsive, ie: no constraints:
XML
<Grid RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" >
    <Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
        <RowDefinition Height="*"/>
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
    </Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

    <StackPanel  x:Name="optionpanel" Background="#FFB3B3B3" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Margin="5">
    </StackPanel>

    <StackPanel x:Name="settingpanel" Background="#FFB3B3B3" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="2" Margin="5" Width="300">
    </StackPanel>

    <StackPanel x:Name="footerpanel" Background="#FFB3B3B3" Grid.Row="2" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Orientation="Vertical">
    </StackPanel>

    <StackPanel x:Name="headerpanel" Background="#143548" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Grid.Row="0" Orientation="Vertical">
    </StackPanel>

    <Border x:Name="viewerPanel" Background="#b3b3b3" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Margin="1,5.2,1,5">
        <TabControl x:Name="viewtab" Background="#b3b3b3" BorderBrush="#FF123648" BorderThickness="2">
            <TabItem Header="3D View">
                <Grid Background="#b3b3b3" Margin="0,0,0.4,1">
                    <TextBlock Text="Content1"
                               HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                               VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
                </Grid>
            </TabItem>
            <TabItem Header="Layer View">
                <TextBlock Text="Content2"
                           HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                           VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
            </TabItem>
        </TabControl>
    </Border>

</Grid>

Your main issue was the StackPanel. I changed it to a Border. Other edits were made to remove properties that are not required.

I have tried this too but the TabControl is not responsive. As I have removed the height
Graeme_Grant 4-Apr-23 8:34am    
Remove the StackPanel control as it is not required for just one Control. The TabControl will expand to fit the container if not constrained.

TabControl is not responsive even after removing Height and StackPanel.
See I have updated the entire code above to make the tab control responsive so you will find it easier to understand.

You still have constraints.

As an example, start a new Wpf project and post this in the MainWindow
<Grid>
    <TabControl Margin="10">
        <TabItem Header="Tab1">
            <TextBlock Text="Content1"
                       HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                       VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
        </TabItem>
        <TabItem Header="Tab2">
            <TextBlock Text="Content2"
                       HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                       VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
        </TabItem>
        <TabItem Header="Tab3">
            <TextBlock Text="Content3"
                       HorizontalAlignment="Center"
                       VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
        </TabItem>
    </TabControl>
</Grid>

Now run and you can see that it is responsive when unconstrained.

Here is another constraint... change this:
<TabItem Header="Layer View" Margin="12.8,-2,-13,0" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Width="73">

to:
<TabItem Header="Layer View" Margin="12.8,-2,-13,0">
