Hi, I'm using a plain TablControl with Win32, using XP Themes. I'm placing 16x16 icon images in the tab title of the control pages (not using owner draw - just using the API). It appears that the tab control changes the color/transparency of the image, rather than just using the transparency of the icon supplied. So, then the title has a gradient fill, lighter images become mostly transparent, whereas dark images seem to work better almost as well as when I'm drawing them in another window myself. Is anyone aware of an option to allow the images to be displayed properly? (Note: I'm actually using the Win32 API, rather than MFC, but this seemed like the nearest forum).
