Sorry to sound like such a crab. I did check out the TabStrip class but nothing in the docs that I saw pointed to what I needed. I was looking all over for an FpSpread property to disallow adding new sheets. Even had I noticed the TabStripInsertTab property, it would not have jumped out at me as the solution to my needs. Also, the search on TabStrip did turn up a top of listings, most of which didn't pertain to this issue at all so I would have had to wade through who knows how many before I finally found the right one.
The TabStrip appearance and avilable glyphs should be driven by FpSpread (or alternatively but not preferred Sheets) properties for AllowNew, AllowDelete, etc, and not the other way around as it is currently.
You guys need no defense, you do an outstanding job. It's just that every once in a while you do things in a non-intuitive manner. It was nice meeting you last week when I was in for class.
