UPDATE: APPEON HAS INDICATED THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A CLOSE BUTTON ON THE TABCONTROL - TABPAGE.
And no, the new 2022 R2 features for MDI frames as TABS does not solve the issue. (One cannot have an MDI in a dialog box)
Also you cannot close a dynamically opened category tab in the BibbonBar as there is no way to place a close button on the tab (yes you can code a BAD UI button somewhere else - but that is just ugly and BAD UI - so there is room for improvement.
I'M SETTING THIS TOPIC TO "RESOLVED" and it sems it will not be adressed by Appeon
How can I place a close button on each tabpage (or the selected tab) in a tabcontrol. Just like the tabs in a browser and many applications.
I know this is a classic question and a feature request for many many years. I just need it badly now.
Maybe finding the x,y of the active tabpage and dynamically place a control at the end.. I just have no clue on how to find the x,y,width of the tab.
Any clue is most appreciated.
ps. This is a standard feature in VS since 2005 .. I'm very happy with Appeons deliveries I just need this
pps. The pbultimatesuite is an absolute no-go
