There's nothing to stop you from replicating that behavior with a tab control, but it will involve dropping separate datagrids onto each tab. You'll be using multiple controls to mimic the effect of having one control that displays different behavior depending on the tab selected.
As Sam said, the more functional way to solve the problem in .NET is to use a different control to manipulate the datagrid results, typically a form component. That's the more elegant solution in .NET unless you really like using the tab interface, in which case, yes, you're sort of trying to horseshoe that functionality into your application. Or you could try doing some custom component building. :D I think it's fun, but then I'm a geek so what do you expect.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
