Interface Color

I am using a Microsoft 6.0 Tabbed Dialog Control on my VB Application.
I would like to change the color of my Tabbed control.
How Is it done?. I have tried changing the background color from the
properties dialog box but no changes took place.

Your help is kindly appreciated.

You cannot change the color of the tabbed control. It is controlled by the windows Appearance settings. If you change the windows screen settings to some other theme, then you will see that the color of the Tab Control has also changed.

If you are really inclined to change the color of the tab control, you can do it with some limitations. What you can do is put a label on the tab. Change the backcolor of the label and then put controls over the label.

Sometimes this may look awful, but if you use the colors properly, the tab control will look very good. But you will have to change the color of form also.

Somewhere I had heard about subclassing under this context only. I dont know what it is but check in MSDN.

All the best.
