How can I change dynamicly the title (color and make it bold) of a TabPage in a TabControl? Because I added the TabPages dynamicly, I want to do it by using the TabPageIndex.

Thank's so far.
I can change the Background of the tabpage, but the square, where the title is written, doesn't change the color. How can I also change the color of the square?
And how can I change the style of the title. I want to write it fat....

You surely have overriden the DrawItem event. This is the place where you need to modify it.

Here is an example of something I did to bold the text of the selected tab:
If CBool(e.State And DrawItemState.Selected) Then
    Dim f As Font = New Font(e.Font, FontStyle.Bold)
    e.Graphics.DrawString(Me.TabPages(e.Index).Text, f, Brushes.Red, r2, sf)
Else
    e.Graphics.DrawString(Me.TabPages(e.Index).Text, e.Font, b, r2, sf)
End If
