Vertical scrollbar for the separate tabs window

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Sergey Vlasov @ 9:53 am

When using the separate tabs window in stack mode, sometime you can open more tabs than fit in the docked window. One possible solution is to add a vertical scrollbar to scroll through the windows:

Tabs window with a vertical scrollbar

Tabs window with a vertical scrollbar

The following style adds ScrollViewer with vertical scroll bar visibility set to Auto, i.e. it is visible only when tabs don’t fit without scrolling:

<Style TargetType="TabsStudio:TabsHost" BasedOn="{StaticResource DefaultTabsHostStyle}">
  <Setter Property="Template">
      <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type TabsStudio:TabsHost}">
        <ScrollViewer HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Disabled"
            <Rectangle Width="{TemplateBinding Width}"
                       Height="{TemplateBinding Height}"
                       Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}"/>
