I am looking to change the colour of the selected tab in a tab control.
For example I have a Tab Control with 3 tabs (P1, P2, P3). What I want is when P2 is selected, it is highlighted say by making the whole tab Red but P1 and P3 are say grey. Hence when say, P1 is then selected,it is Red and P2 + P3 are Grey.
Is there a way to do this - I have enabled Multiple colours in my Tab Control
Help would be appreciated
Solved! Go to Solution.
you can set colors by either right-click+Properties or by using property nodes. Just read the help for the properties of the tab control!

I have graphs on the Tabs on my Tab Control, these did update in real time however they now only update when you click back to the tab in question.
Is there a reason for this and how do I remedy this problem
It is expected behaviour that non-vislable graphs do not update if not visable. I can only guess that now that you have changed to background color it is taking longer to update them and now you can see the update happening.
Would it be possible to do something similar using images for the tabs, and change the image for the active tab?
