Have a tab control on a winForm and tabPgs are dynamically added at runtime. How do I enable or add (code) for horizontal scrollbar at the bottom of tab control once tabs reach beyond the space on my form? I know that the tab control will display/add the "scroll buttons" but I need a scrollbar.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I suspect that you may need to create a custom control to handle this. I've experimented by putting a tab control onto a panel that has AutoScroll set to True and increasing the size of the tab control each time I add a tab - it looks a bit messy - might have to manually "draw" the borders but it works in principle

Have just upvoted your question because it has piqued my interest and I'm enjoying the challenge :-) I'm a *expert* googler and couldn't find a solution that way. And it's been fun trying different ways to achieve (what I think) what you're trying to achieve. If you do find a "perfect" solution think about possibly posting it as a CP article ... if I get there before you .... ;-p

Workaround: Add an
to the form. When adding new pages set
TabControl.Maximun = TabControl.TabCount
. Finally on the
event, set
TabControl.SelectedIndex = HScrollBar.Value
. Yours, Rodolfo.
