Tab Control Colour Change

I have a tab control page in an Access 97 containing approximately 20 pages and I need the tab control text to change colour when a user has clicked and entered that page. When the user exits the database the next user must encounter the same process. This will allow each user to know when they have visited and completed a particular page. Does anyone know how I might be able to apply this?

On the Gotfocus event of each TAB put in the followin code:

TAB.text I am not sure about the 7 syntax.
text.forecolor = rgb(255,0,0) 'Red color

On lostfocus event
text.forecolor = rgb(0,0,0) 'black

What text do you want to change? Tab control itself doesn't have colour property.

In addition to devthas suggestion, you will have to save the users "currentpage" into some table and read from this every time the user opens the form. This way you will be able to present him/her with the page the was active when the form closed down.

Devtha, there is no Gotfocus or Lostfocus event in the properties for tabs within a control page. Am I looking in the wrong place or have I misunderstood your answer? It is only the Tab label text that needs to change.

You can't change Tab label text.

I got a workaround.
I am sorry about the forecolor property.
What you can do is make a small bitmap file with text on it and then change the bitmap when you click the tabpage.
page1.picure = "c:\windows\help.bmp"

This will display the bmp as text HELP. on the tab page.
