Tab BG Colour

Recommended Posts

cookiemonster

How do I set the Tab Background colour so I have the whole lot as #292929?

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 372, 225, 214, 154)
GUISetBkColor (0x292929)
GUICtrlCreateTab(32, 20, 305, 185)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab1")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("tab2")
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH+$GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)
GUICtrlCreateTabItem("")
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
    EndSwitch
WEnd

cookiemonster,

This script colours tabs quite nicely: :)

You inspired me. 
But tell me what you think of such a modification:
#include <GuiConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiTab.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>

; Tab colours
Global $aTabColours[4] = [0xFFC0C0, 0xC0FFC0, 0xC0C0FF, 0xC0C0C0]

    GUICtrlCreateTabItem ("")
Next
GUISetState()

; Pre sets of colours
For $i = 3 To 0 Step -1
    _GUICtrlTab_ClickTab($hTab_Handle, $i)

    ; Colour label
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $sBkColor)
    ; Disable label
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

EndFunc   ;==>_GUICtrlTab_SetBkColor
 
EDIT:

I notice that my example not needed this:

;        Case $hTab
;            TabEvent()
