    3. Select WPF Application, depending on the template you chose. 
    4. Enter a Name for your project, for example "QuickStart", and click OK. In a WPF Application, the MainWindow.xaml file will open.
    5. Add the following assemblies to your application by right-clicking the References folder and selecting add Reference or adding the following Nuget Package:
    • C1.WPF.TabControl
    1. In the Toolbox, double-click the C1TabControl icon to add the C1TabControl control to the application.
    2. Add three tabs to the control by completing the following steps:
      1. Click the C1TabControl control once to select it.

    1. Click OK to close the Collection Editor: Items dialog box.
