Hello,

I am developing a .NET windows (not ASP) application.  The form contains a tab control with a number of tab pages.

I want to change the background color of the TAB (not the TabPage).  For example, I can easily change teh background color of the tabpage to blue, but the actual tab (the bit you click on to change tab pages) is still the default grey.  Can you please show me if / how this can be changed.

Thanks!

 Hello,
  I create this function to do what you need (in C#):

private void changeColor(System.Windows.Forms.TabControl control,System.Drawing.Color color)
{
  for(int i=0;i<control.TabCount;i++)
    control.TabPages[i].BackColor=color;
}

To change the color of the tab control, you simply call for example:
changeColor(tabControl1,Color.Blue);
