How to access the tab header name?

Experts
I want to get the name of the header name of the tab while clicking the tab .
The code by which I am creating the new tab is as followes:
private void mnuSave_Click(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                this.txtTabName.Text = string.Empty;
                winNewTabname.Header = "Set Name of Tab";
                winNewTabname.Top = this._mousePosition.Y;
                winNewTabname.Left = this._mousePosition.X - 200;
                winNewTabname.WindowStartupLocation = WindowStartupLocation.Manual;
                winNewTabname.ResizeMode = ResizeMode.NoResize;
                winNewTabname.Closed += new EventHandler<WindowClosedEventArgs>(winNewTabname_Closed);
                winNewTabname.ShowDialog();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Globals.HandleUIExceptions(ex);
            }
        }
        private void winNewTabname_Closed(object sender, WindowClosedEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.DialogResult == true && !string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.txtTabName.Text.Trim()))
            {
                var found = from Object obj in tabNotes.Items
                            where (obj as RadTabItem).Header.ToString() == this.txtTabName.Text.Trim()
                            select obj;

                if (found.ToList().Count == 0)
                {
                    RadTabItem tabItem = new RadTabItem();
                    tabItem.Tag = this.txtTabName.Text;
                    tabItem.Header = this.txtTabName.Text;
                    tabNotes.Items.Add(tabItem);
                    this.tabNotes.SelectedIndex = tabNotes.Items.Count - 1;
                    RadContextMenu.SetContextMenu(tabItem, _ContextMenu);
                }
                else
                {

                    this.tabNotes.SelectedItem = found.ToList()[0] as RadTabItem;
                }
            }
        }

Now please suggest me how to get the tag name

The TabControl stores the tabs in the Controls collection:
int i = tabControl1.SelectedIndex;
MessageBox.Show(tabControl1.Controls[i].Name);

try Items instead of Controls
If I'm not mistaken, RadTabControl inherits from System.Windows.Controls.ItemsControl which has Items collection to hold the tabs.
int i = tabControl1.SelectedIndex;
MessageBox.Show(tabControl1.Items[i].Name);

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

name option is not associated with the Items .
As you can see in the attached code.

I just realized that RadTabControl is not a .NET control
refer to the product documentation at
http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/telerik.windows.controls.navigation-telerik.windows.controls.radtabcontrol_members.html

one of the control members should let you get the name of the selected tab.
try SelectedItem property:
MessageBox.Show((string)tabControl1.SelectedItem);

Hi,

Get the SelectedTab in TabItem object and get text using TabItem.Text

Expert AbdKhalif
in all cases it is taking a null value as I am just instantiating the tabcontrol and after that using your messagebox statement .
So it is not catching the value of the current tab which is clicked .
I have tried to use the this key word but failed .
can you please help me .
Thanking you,

abdkhlaifCommented:
The tab control is already created & initialized in the InitializeComponent() method, you shouldn't create another tab control inside winRenameTabname_Closed()
so you need to replace "tabControl1" with the correct object name

The object which is declared earlier is not accessible in the winRenameTabname_Closed()
You can see that in the intellisense.

Hi!

Its not a simple TabControl its custom Control so I can not tell you directly as my internet connection is very slow to download control and test it.

Check this: (Code for rename menu)

RadTabItem item = this.tabNotes.SelectedItem as RadTabItem;
String NameOfTab = item.Header;


Is this helpful ??

What did you get ?? when used this code???

Shahan AyyubSenior Software Engineer - iOSCommented:
Did you check this as well:

RadTabItem item = this.tabNotes.SelectedItem as RadTabItem;
object NameOfTab = item.Header;


You need to check this properties as well from the below link:
http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/telerik.windows.controls.navigation-telerik.windows.controls.radtabcontrol_properties.html

Items property its a collection and find the current selected tab and search for Header property.
Header property


In this piece of code:

Dim index As Integer
Dim value As RadTabItem
value = tabNotes.Item(index)

Find Header Property under "value".
