How to change the borders of a tab in WinForms TabControlAdv?

2 mins read

Change the borders of a tab

You can change border colors by overriding the GetTopLeftBorderColor, GetRightBottomBorderColor, and GetRightBottomBorderShadeColor methods and providing a custom color.

To get a 2D border, override GetRightBottomBorderShadeColor and return Color.Empty. You can optionally also override the other methods above and provide custom colors for your borders.

You can also override Draw3DBorder and handle the border drawing logic yourself.
