Hello,

one of our customers wants to have colored Tabpage Headers.
I tried TabPage.TabBackColor but this just works with the Project.'Windows Classic Style' Option enabled.
Any other way to  get colored TabPage Headers in our Powerbuilder Classic App?

Hi Chris,

good idea!

We are using already pictures to indicate important/filled tabpages with an !-Picture.
I think we can enlarge them with color-blocks.

regards
André

Hi André;

Another approach ...

  Example of small coloured image files assigned to each Tab Page ...

Food for thought!

Regards .... Chris

What about using a different coloured image on each tab page?



I'll post an example in a minute!

Hi André;

  Unfortunately unless you you use the old "Windows Classic" style, the background colourization on Tab Pages does not take effect - even though you can set that in either the Window or User Object painters. I believe that there is already a ticket in the Support System for this issue.

  The only thing that I can think of to address this short coming in the near term would to build your old Tab Page user objects like we did way back in PB 3/4 (before the Tab Control was introduced). Then you would have absolute control over the GUI in that case. However, I am not sure if that is realistic logistics wise considering the effort and time.

Regards ... Chris
