Context Menu in Windows Forms Tabbed Form (SfTabbedForm)

The context menu for the tabbed form can be set using the TabbedFormControl.TabContextMenu property.

public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    tabbedFormControl = new SfTabbedFormControl();

    for (int i = 1; i <= 15; i++)
        tabbedFormControl.Tabs.Add(new TabPageAdv() { Text = "Document" + i });

    this.Controls.Add(tabbedFormControl);

    this.TabbedFormControl = tabbedFormControl;

    #region Context Menu Customization
    ContextMenuStrip tabContextMenu = new ContextMenuStrip();
    tabContextMenu.Items.Add("Close", null, OnCloseMenuClicked);
    tabbedFormControl.TabContextMenu = tabContextMenu;
	#endregion

}
Public Sub New()
	InitializeComponent()
	tabbedFormControl = New SfTabbedFormControl()

	For i As Integer = 1 To 15
		tabbedFormControl.Tabs.Add(New TabPageAdv() With {.Text = "Document" & i})
	Next i

	Me.Controls.Add(tabbedFormControl)

	Me.TabbedFormControl = tabbedFormControl

	#Region "Context Menu Customization"
	Dim tabContextMenu As New ContextMenuStrip()
	tabContextMenu.Items.Add("Close", Nothing, OnCloseMenuClicked)
	tabbedFormControl.TabContextMenu = tabContextMenu
	#End Region
End Sub

Customize context menu in tabs like web browser

The context menu can be customized when opening the context menu by handling the ContextMenuOpening event. The following code example demonstrates how to provide context menu in tabs like web browser using the TabContextMenu property.

TabPageAdv clickedTab;
SfTabbedFormControl tabbedFormControl;
#region Constructor
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();

    tabbedFormControl = new SfTabbedFormControl();

    for (int i = 1; i <= 3; i++)
        tabbedFormControl.Tabs.Add(new TabPageAdv() { Text = "Document" + i });

    this.Controls.Add(tabbedFormControl);

    this.TabbedFormControl = tabbedFormControl;

    #region Context Menu Customization
    ContextMenuStrip tabContextMenu = new ContextMenuStrip();
    tabContextMenu.Items.Add("Close", null, OnCloseMenuClicked);
    tabContextMenu.Items.Add("Close all but this", null, OnCloseAllMenuClicked);
    tabContextMenu.Items.Add("Close tabs to the right", null, OnCloseTabsToRightMenuClicked);
    tabbedFormControl.TabContextMenu = tabContextMenu;
    tabbedFormControl.ContextMenuOpening += TabbedFormControl_ContextMenuOpening;
