Change background color of a tab/tabitem control?


Recommended Posts

my gui has a background color set, I want the color inside the tab box to match it, but all I get is the default

here is my code for the tab/tabitem control:

Opt("GUICoordMode",0)

$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 10, 195, 175)

GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,$background[1][1])

$tab1 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Apps")

GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DEFBUTTON)

$but1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("1", 32, 40, 32, 32,$BS_ICON)

GUICtrlSetImage (-1, $but1opt1[2][1])

any help would be appreciated

Hello,

Found in AutoIT help file, GUICtrlSetColorFunction Reference ->>

Remarks

Only Label and Progress controls can currently be colored.

you can add a label to the tab item and make it the size of the tab item's client area. get the handle to the label using ControlGetHandle() , then make a child window the exact same size and position as the label, use the handle for the label as the last parameter in GuiCreate().

you can then set the background color of the child window as you wish and continue adding controls to that child window.

it's a pain, but it works.....also how I make "Nested" tabs....
