Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.TabAppearance

One of the TabAppearance values. The default is Normal.

Exception Condition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

The property value is not a valid TabAppearance value.

When you set the Appearance property to FlatButtons, it only appears as such when the Alignment property is set to Top. Otherwise, the Appearance property appears as if set to the Buttons value.

System_CAPS_noteNote

When you set the Appearance property to Buttons, you must also set the Alignment property to Top so that the tab page contents display correctly.

The following code example creates a TabControl with two TabPage objects. This example sets the Appearance property to Buttons, which displays the tabs of the tab pages as buttons.

Use the System.Windows.Forms namespace for this example.
