MS Access tab control background colour

Hi Experts,

I cannot believe i am struggling with this. But i have a tab control with 4 tabs. On one of the tabs i have a subform with the standard background colour (-2147483633). I tried changing this background colour to white (16777215) so as the subform matched the tab control.
I then realised that the tab control is actually a slightly cream colour. Does anyone know the colour code for this? Ideally i want the subform backfround colour to be cream so as it blends into the tab control.
Also out of interest, where do you set the tab control background colour? As you cannot set the colour in the same way you would a form.

Many Thanks,
Dean

Hi dean,

You can't  set the tab control background colour.
You can set the backstyle of the tab control to transparent & change the colour of the form.
