dragonlord,

You can do it like this: ;)

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiTab.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cTab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 480, 300)
; get the position of the tab control itself
$aTabPos = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $cTab)

$cTab_0 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab 0")
; Get the posisitona nd size of the tab client area
$aClientPos = _GUICtrlTab_GetDisplayRect(GUICtrlGetHandle($cTab))
GUICtrlCreatePic("Your_Image_Path", $aClientPos[0] + $aTabPos[0], $aClientPos[1] + $aTabPos[1], $aClientPos[2] - $aClientPos[0], $aClientPos[3] - $aClientPos[1])

$cTab_1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab 1")
GUICtrlCreatePic("Your_Image_Path", $aClientPos[0] + $aTabPos[0], $aClientPos[1] + $aTabPos[1], $aClientPos[2] - $aClientPos[0], $aClientPos[3] - $aClientPos[1])

GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Do not forget to diable the Pic control if you add other controls to the tab. ;)

Thank you melba :thumbsup:

This looks fine, until i add controls to the tabsheet.

  1. If i add input boxes before i create the pic, the input boxes stay hidden until i mousehover them.
  2. If i add input boxes after i create the pic, the input boxes don't get focus on hover or click.
GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 118, 213, 137, 21)
GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 118, 266, 137, 21)

GUICtrlCreatePic("bg.jpg", $aClientPos[0] + $aTabPos[0], $aClientPos[1] + $aTabPos[1], $aClientPos[2] - $aClientPos[0], $aClientPos[3] - $aClientPos[1])

GUICtrlCreateInput("Input3", 118, 113, 137, 21)
GUICtrlCreateInput("Input4", 118, 166, 137, 21)

Be careful using relative paths e.g. bg.jpg. Try to use @ScriptDir & "bg.jpg" if you can.

dragonlord,

Which bit of "Do not forget to disable the Pic control if you add other controls to the tab" was hard to understand? :huh:

Fairly forgetful and stupid (me).

Anyways, i did try disabling the pic but din help

GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 118, 213, 137, 21)
GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 118, 266, 137, 21)
GUICtrlCreateInput("Input3", 118, 113, 137, 21)
GUICtrlCreateInput("Input4", 118, 166, 137, 21)

GUICtrlCreatePic("C:\Users\nbklbo8\Desktop\pix\Windows 7.jpg", $aClientPos[0] + $aTabPos[0], $aClientPos[1] + $aTabPos[1], $aClientPos[2] - $aClientPos[0], $aClientPos[3] - $aClientPos[1])
GUICtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE)

The help file also said this :

 

If a picture is set as a background picture, as the other controls will overlap, it's important to disable the pic control and create it after the others controls: GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_DISABLE). This is not enough for Tab or Listview control which behave differently. In this case you need to create the picture with the $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS style, GuiCtrlSetState(-1,$GUI_ONTOP) is necessary for the Tab, TreeView or Listview control.

which i couldnt get to work either...

dragonlord,

Try creating and disabling the Pic control before creating the other controls - the Help file will be amended for the next release. :)

If that does not do it, then please post the whole script - it works for everyone else so there must be a reason it does not for you. ;)
