Implement tab closing ala Firefox

Application dynamically adds tabs to tabcontrol based on user actions.  I would like to implement a Firefox-style technique to close (delete) the active tab.

Each tab has a text title and an icon from an imagelist.  When the tab is active (selected), I would like to display a small red "X" on the right side.  When the user clicks the "X" resources would be freed and the tab deleted from the tabcontrol collection.

I presume, I would have to draw it using GDI+ and compare coordinates in mouseup event?

Simpler way?  Code sample?
