How to Move Tabs Using Drag and Drop

Set the RadTabControl's property AllowDragReorder to True or False to allow/disallow the user to reorder the tab items of your tab control using Drag & Drop.

XAML

<telerik:RadTabControl x:Name="radTabControl" AllowDragReorder="True">
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Calendar"/>
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Colors"/>
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Quote"/>
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Web Sites"/>
</telerik:RadTabControl>

The same behavior can be enabled/disabled in the code-behind.

C#

private void EnableReordering()
{
    radTabControl.AllowDragReorder = true;
}

VB.NET

Private Sub EnableReordering()
    radTabControl.AllowDragReorder = True
End Sub
