I answered this question this morning, and I just noticed it asked again, but the old one has disappeared? why?

Body of original question from browser cache:


How do I set the TabItem.Header to bindings taken from few fields, each binding shown in a different size, all in the place of the original header text; without overriding the default style and behavior of the header - I only need the text.

I tried to set its template but then it creates a rectangle that contains the inner controls, and this rectengle is not responsive for user clicks, and also have the control-style, i want this controls to be unvisible, only its text should be visible.

I've tried the following:

But it doesn't show anything.

I've also tried to set the HeaderTemplate to a DataTemplate but what happens is, the DataTemplate overrides the TabItem style and when I click the text it doesn't go to the clicked tab, besides, the unselected tabs look very funny, I see the rectengle of the text floating, while I want it to be transparent.

So, to summarize up my question, I want to set TabItem.Header.Text to a MultiBinding with StringFormat.

Any idea would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Agreed the question has been changed, but why not just change the question if he asked it wrong/badly?

It was very dajavu to find the question again but without my answer present.

Just had the same thing happen to me with a question regarding jQuery Droppable this morning. Its really annoying that people can just delete questions after you go to the trouble of providing them with a working code sample in your answer. – kekekela Mar 16 '10 at 13:21

The author deleted it, that's why it's gone.

Seems like a rep heist gone wrong to me. – Maxim Zaslavsky Dec 9 '09 at 2:15
Well that was obvious. I guess my question was more a META level, what's the opinion about this happening. Do the powers that be love it, like it, dislike it, discourage it. Is there anything done about it. Just trying to workout the correct level of whining. But on the whole it's annoying to have my answer deleted, as I find them usefull snippest of code. – Simeon Pilgrim Dec 9 '09 at 2:50
This happened to me today... if the author deleted it and I'm in the middle of answering the question/updating an answer I already posted, I would like a notification or something. It's not fun to find out I just wasted my last 15 minutes. – Mottie Jun 24 '10 at 14:19
