How to save on your DevExpress subscription

Normally you would guess that the price goes down when you order for a longer period.  Not with DevExpress components.  It depends on the date until when you want your subscription to be extended. 

I made some calculations.  Apparently there can be a difference of more than $ 0,25 PER DAY for your subscription.

How to extend the TabControl in Windows Forms

by Damiaan Peeters 19. February 2008 15:35

Short post, much code.

In this post I want to show how the TabControl can be extended.  How you can Hide and show a TabPage.

You can use the control like this:

 

if (currentProduct.Product_Compound)
{
tabProduct.ShowTabPage(tabProductCompound);
}
else
{
tabProduct.HideTabPage(tabProductCompound);
}

    /// <summary>
    /// A new tabControl
    /// </summary>
    public class TabControl : System.Windows.Forms.TabControl
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// Hides the tab page.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="tp">The TabPage</param>
        public void HideTabPage(TabPage tp)
        {
            if (this.TabPages.Contains(tp))
                this.TabPages.Remove(tp);
