Boot Tab Control is a good looking Windows Control. It has many functions. First you can change colors of the control or control drawing mode. Both Linear Gradient and Solid modes are supported.

Boot Tab Control supports three selected tab changing. These are Fade, Slide and Normal. These affects will be applied while selected tab is changing. You can also change the TabsLaout. Bottom and Top Layouts are supported. The others (Left, Right) are not supported.
Free to use. Have fun ...

This means that Boot.UI.dll is not referenced to the Test application. Before using Boot Tab Control you have to add reference to its assembly in your projects.
Download newest version (both test application and Boot.UI.dll) from http://www.ozzydotnet.com
I quess that you removed reference to the Boot.UI.dll from Test Application.
The only thing you can do is right click to the Test Application in Solution explorer and click to the Add Reference menu. Then browse to the Boot.UI.dll (for you:D:\Boot Tab Control\Source-VSNET2003\BootUI\bin\Debug folder) or if you open the solution file look at to the Projects Tab and Select Boot.UI. Thank click to OK Button. This will add reference of Boot.UI to the Test Application. Now it can found the Boot namespace... (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)

I found a bug. When in fading mode...move the form to a different location...then click on the tab...as you can see, it fades from the original form position and then you click on another tab....and its okay. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I will check this later.. You are right this is a real bug and occurs only first time in Fade Animation mode if the location of Parent changed ... (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
To solve this problem... Simply go to the AssemblyInfo.cs in the Boot.UI.dll than open it... Change the following line; [AssembyKeyFile(@"C:\Keys\keyNinova.snk")] to [AssemblyKeyFile("")] This will solve this problem ... (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Great control it has helped me a lot on my application.
I only have one problem though - I have got several databound comboboxes on different tabs, When I run the application and change the value in one dropdown, all the other dropdowns on the different tabs also change value to the one selected.
(If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I guess that this error is not about the Tab Control. May be some other things may cause this problem. There is nothing in the Boot Tab Control that cause this error.
Pls try; Put you combo box directly in to the form and remove the Boot Tab Control and try again. Are they changed together again ? If so this program is not related with the tab control. If not than tell me i will have a look to the Tab control what can cause this ...
Thanks .. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Such a Wonderful work! I like it and add to my program. I have found a problem: If I add a controls into one of the tabpages of the tabcontrol by programing(not by drop), the controls I added will not show until I change the current tabpage to another one and chnage back. I have tried the tabcontrol and the tabpage's Refresh() method, but no use. Thanks! (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
Very pretty control, thanks. Found a small bug. If you want the tabs to be in the bottom, they dont respond to the mouse, to fix, swap around the lines in SimpleTabControl.cs, at 760 so that _PanelArea is setup before _OnlyTabs Area, like this:
Great control, thanks. Found a small bug in the current version when using the "bottom" style, the mouse clicks are ignored. To fix it, swap around the order in which _PanelArea and _OnlyTabsArea are setup in line 760 of SimpleTabControl.cs, like this:
Fantastic control!! I also have encountered a different bug not described on this page. When adding any kind of control* to any tab other than the first SimpleTabPage and set the Anchor property to include all four sides, the resizing behavior acts very strangely at runtime only (the strange behavior does not occur at design time if you resize your form). At runtime, initially, the control may be sized so small that you cannot see it, but if you maximize your window you should be able to see the control. If you set a MinimumSize property on the control, then you will see the control, but when you resize the form, the resizing is not proportionately correct. I am not a C# programmer and am not confident in trying to attempt to correct the issue, however it appears the problem may be found in SimpleTabControl.CalculateVariables function. *I've tried Panel, TextBox, ToolStripContainter, and ListView controls to verify this. Thank you! (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
