Set backcolor on TabControl

I need to remove or set the backcolor on a TabControl, but there is no "BackColor" option on this control - what to do?

Thanks

1. Set the TabControl's DrawMode to OwnerDraw
2. Handle the DrawItem event to draw things yourself
You may call the following method at the DrawItem event of tab control to test this.



private void ChangeTabColor(DrawItemEventArgs e)
{
Font TabFont;
Brush BackBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Green); //Set background color
Brush ForeBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.Yellow);//Set foreground color
if (e.Index == this.tabControl1.SelectedIndex)
{
TabFont = new Font(e.Font, FontStyle.Italic FontStyle.Bold);
}
else
{
TabFont = e.Font;
}
string TabName = this.tabControl1.TabPages[e.Index].Text;
StringFormat sf = new StringFormat();
sf.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
e.Graphics.FillRectangle(BackBrush, e.Bounds);
Rectangle r = e.Bounds;
r = new Rectangle(r.X, r.Y + 3, r.Width, r.Height - 3);
e.Graphics.DrawString(TabName, TabFont, ForeBrush, r, sf);
//Dispose objects
sf.Dispose();
if (e.Index == this.tabControl1.SelectedIndex)
{
TabFont.Dispose();
BackBrush.Dispose();
}
else
{
BackBrush.Dispose();
ForeBrush.Dispose();
}
}
