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.

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

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

private void EnableReordering() 
    radTabControl.AllowDragReorder = true; 
Private Sub EnableReordering() 
    radTabControl.AllowDragReorder = True 
End Sub
