HI Stephen

You have to implement the Selecting event and use the passed argument to cancel the switching

Something like this ....
private void tabControl_Selecting(object sender,TabControlCancelEventArgs e)

{
 

e.Cancel = !IsAuthorized();
 

}
 

private bool IsAuthorized () {
 

// check authorization and return true/false

}

Open in new window
