Change color of caption in control tabs

100+
P: 462
I have five control tabs setup each tab represents an activitity that this person wants to do. I would like to change the color of the tab so when you look at the main form it will show at a glance which activities the person has signed up for. In looking at the properties of the tab I don't see any way to change the color. Does anybody have any suggestions how I could accomplish this. Thanks for any help.

Here's a clever solution I had bookmarked. It's quite a bit of work, so it may not be worth your time. The link is to a page on Access Tips from Martin Green. Coloured Tabs for Your Access Forms

Interesting link Chip.

In short, the effect can be simulated with the instructions there, but the author starts by saying the standard tab (or page) control doesn't have this facility.

That's pretty darn clever... actually it is very basic but the use of the little "boxPatch" rectangles to give the appearance of switching tabs is very smart. It's a fair bit of fiddly work but do it once and put it aside until you need it.
