Tabsheets appear grey when using common controls 6 (with xp manifest)
Posted on 2002-04-06
When using a manifest file to tell my delphi application to use Common Controls 6, it looks fine apart from PageControl tabsheets. The background of the tabsheet is grey rather than white as it should be in Windows XP. The actual "tabs" (the bits you click on) themselves are fine, but the client area where controls are placed is the wrong colour.
Does anyone have a simple solution for this? There is no tabsheet color property, and also it may need to be another colour depending on the theme users have selected. (Especially those with XP plus pack).
