SSTAB, how do i do this, is it possible?

if it possible to have it tell which tab is clicked? I'm trying to make it change a certain tabs caption if that tab is clicked.  

for example: if ONLY tab(8) is clicked
Form1.SSTab1.TabCaption(7) = "~"

If a tab is cliked then it'll be active , right. So I think you just have to find out which tab is active when sstab is clicked.
Maybe you can use something like this :

Private Sub SSTab1_Click(PreviousTab As Integer) ' previous tab is the previous active tab
    MsgBox Form1.SSTab1.Tab                                        ' show the curent active tab
    'maybe you would like to add some code line like
    If Form1.SSTab1.Tab = 8 Then Form1.SSTab1.TabCaption(7) = "~"
End Sub

Hope that help.

You can change the font type in the font property.Font size, font type and boldness.
But this action may cause dificulty to differ active and non active tab, cause sstab use bold font to indicate active tab.

the reason i need this is so the user gets notified of new messages. like if new messages come in, the message tab becomes bold. ;(. but its not possible to do with sstab1 right?
