How do I bold text when a tab is selected?

I am trying to visually enhance a tab when it's  selected (pressed).

 I would like the font for that tab to change to Arial Black upon receiving focus (pressed).

I can't seem to find which property sheet entry
would achieve this display on focus?

Do I have to build a procedure to achieve this effect?

Bold selected tab?

You cannot do this in the standard Access tab control.  Any formatting you set applies to all pages.

If your aim is to distinguish pages more clearly, then you can create different coloured backgrounds for each page but this does not affect the tabs.

To do this you add a rectangle control to the page, the rectangle should be the full size of the page.  Set its background colour to what you want and then use the SendToBack option to put it behind the controls.  So you can use a different colour for each page.

While it seems that you can't change to bold there is apparently a class available that will change the color.
