Athough not a perfect solution, you could put a frame control on the SSTab control and change the backcolor property of the frame and set the border property to 0 - none.

You can try my tabstrip.  It's very similar to the ssTab, but it supports different colors, and is in pure VB code, so if you want to add a feature, you can.

It's available at:  http://www.mindspring.net/~kswinney/

Cheers!

Is staffiidba a politician? Mags23 doesn't want grey in this case and it is the colour of the tab control he/she would like to change. (only kidding)
