Is it possible to change the orientation of tab pages in a tabControl from horizontal to vertical Insteaf of having the tab pages along side one another, I want to order them on top of each other.

Any tips

Thanks in Advance.

There is no support for vertical oriented tabs in the default .NET control. You should develop your own derived control and add support for vertical tabs. I found this article that might be interesting for you. It's at least a start.

Or you can choose an existing commercial component:

Or you can choose for a control with source available like one I found on codeproject:

Personally, i find http://www.dotnetrix.co.uk/controls.html one of the better (if not the best) resource for TabPage customization...
