Getting The Tab to Work

Create a new project and add TWBP API.dll file to your toolbox.
add TWBPTabs to your Form1, and set the dock style to FILL. Then, double-click on the TWBP Tab and add the following code:

      TabControl.TabCloseButtonImage = My.Resources.close_Tab_0 'This could be a close button of your choice
        TwbpTabs1.TabCloseButtonImage_Over = My.Resources.close_Tab_0 'Same as above
       TwbpTabs1.TabCloseButtonImage_Pressed = My.Resources.close_Tab_0 'Same As Above
        TwbpTabs1l.TabBarBorderColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#DDDDDD") 'Change these to suit your needs
       TwbpTabs1.TabBarTopColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#F5F5F5")
     TwbpTabs1.TabBarBottomColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#F5F5F5")
        TwbpTabs1.TabTopColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#FFFFFF")
      TwbpTabs1.TabBottomColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#FFFFFF")
        TwbpTabs1.bgTabTopColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#FFFFFF")
        TwbpTabs1.bgTabBottomColour = New ColinVerhey.TWBP.TWBPColour("#FFFFFF")
        TwbpTabs1.TabContainer.AddTab(New Tabs, True, TabControl.TabContainer.TabCount) 'In the New Tabs, True code part, change the Tabs to your Tab form.

Once you are finished with that, go to the TWBPTabs1_NewTabButtonPressed event and add the following code.

TwbpTabs1.TabContainer.AddTab(New Tabs, True, TabControl.TabContainer.TabCount)

And finally, go to the designer, and set the DefaultSingleTabWidth to 200.
