Can i set the font weight to bold on a tab control when it is selected?

Hi Experts,

Can you set the tab control font to bold when that particular tab is selected?  Or is there anything you can do to help the user know they are on that tab?  I have tried several things, but nothing is working so far.  

For example, in the click event of a tab i put:


Nothing happened....i've put other stuff, like trying to change the color:
me.Tab1.FontColor=RGB(239, 211, 210)

but nothing happened.  Help?? It  doesn't have to be anything fancy but if i can do something to distinguish between what tab is being accessed it would be great. Thanks :-)

Not that I'm aware of. 2007 does "highlight" the current tab, and places the small colored bar at the top. That's normally sufficient for users to be able to track which page they're on.

You cant change tab font, but you could do some trick involving pictures.
I've attached a test where you can see a possibility.
Save the attached bmp images directly on C:

It's not especially fancy coded but it does the trick:-)

Thanks, both of these would work.  I appreciate your help.  This is for a doctors office and there are so many tabs, the nurses were getting lost on which tab they had open.  I really appreciate your help.
