Highlighting tabs for the selected project

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Sergey Vlasov @ 11:11 pm

I’ve created the new Selector add-in that dynamically highlights tabs belonging to the same project as the selected tab.

For example, when the selected tab is from the BlazorApp1 project:

And when the selected tab is from the WpfApp1 project:

A sample tabs style setting transparent red background color for selected project tabs excluding the selected tab:

<Style TargetType="TabsStudio:Tab" BasedOn="{StaticResource DefaultTabStyle}">
              <Condition Binding="{Binding Path=(TabsStudioSelector:Properties.IsSelectedProject), RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" Value="True" />
              <Condition Binding="{Binding Path=IsTabSelected, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" Value="False"/>
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="#50FF0000" />
