Changing Tab location on a TabControl

I would like to change the location of the tabs of the TabControl to the bottom instead of the top, But I don't know where to start to do this. Any Suggestions?

Thanks,

Thank-you for your suggestion, I didn't know that, but also I forgot to mention that I'm using the Compact Framework and It appears to NOT have an alignment property.

Any Suggestions in Compact Framework?
Sorry I didn't mention this before.

Hi Koderiter,

Not sure if this will help, but here is the line that the full framework GUI generates when you change the alignment to bottom:

            this.tabControl1.Alignment = System.Windows.Forms.TabAlignment.Bottom;

Hendrik,
 Thanks for the code, but unfortunately their is no Alignment property and there is not System.Windows.Forms.TabAlignment  in .NET Compact Framework.
I'm writing an application for a winCE unit, and I need to have the tabs at the bottom. Do I have to create my Own TabControl with the tabs on the bottom, or can I somehow inherit the Existing TabControl and just invert/ flip somehow?

Thanks,
Rj

Click the tab control > go to 'Properties' window at the right bottom > find the property 'Alignment' > click that field and select 'Bottom'

Hi Koderiter,

It looks like your stuck with the tabs position, unless you write your own control:
