Prerequisites

  1. Set up your WinUI project.

  2. Create your Telerik UI for WinUI application and install the Telerik UI for WinUI components depending on the required installation approach:

Add the Assembly References

To use the RadTabControl component, add a reference to the Telerik.WinUI.Controls.dll assembly.

Define the Component

The following example demonstrates how to define the TabControl component. You can access the TabControl through the xmlns:telerik="using:Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls" alias that points to the Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls namespace.

Define the TabControl

<telerik:RadTabControl> 
    <telerik:RadTabControl.Items> 
        <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 1" Content="The content of tab item 1"/> 
        <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 2" Content="The content of tab item 2"/> 
        <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 3" Content="The content of tab item 3"/> 
        <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 4" Content="The content of tab item 4"/> 
    </telerik:RadTabControl.Items> 
</telerik:RadTabControl> 
RadTabControl Example

RadTabItem is a header content control, which means that it can have header and content. You can use the Header and Content properties of RadTabItem to define what to display in the tab. The properties are of type object and can contain UI elements, strings, business objects or any other element that inherits the System.Object class.

Setting a UIElement as the value of the RadTabItem's Content property

<telerik:RadTabControl> 
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 1"> 
        <telerik:RadTabItem.Content> 
            <Border Background="Bisque"> 
                <TextBlock Text="The content of tab item 1"  
                           FontWeight="Bold"  
                           VerticalAlignment="Center"  
                           TextAlignment="Center" /> 
            </Border> 
        </telerik:RadTabItem.Content> 
    </telerik:RadTabItem> 
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 2" /> 
    <telerik:RadTabItem Header="Tab 3" /> 
</telerik:RadTabControl>
