TTabSheet

How do you change the colour of the canvas of the 'tab' for each tabsheet in a pagecontrol. Here I am referring to the little rectangle which by default contains the text 'TabSheet1'. I am developing in DELPHI 5. NB!!!!

Hi Dione,

what you must do is to set the OwnerDraw property of TPageControl to True and assign an OnDrawTab event with something like the following code:

procedure TMainForm.PageControl1DrawTab(Control: TCustomTabControl;
  TabIndex: Integer; const Rect: TRect; Active: Boolean);
begin
  with Control do
  begin
    Canvas.Brush.Color := clRed;
    Canvas.FillRect(Rect);
  end;
end;

Ciao, Mike
