Tab control

Recommended Posts

Hi! I''ve got a tab control in a little program I''m working on. On Windows XP the backgound of the tab control is white but when I put other controls, like static text, on the tabs, the background of the text is the same color as the window background(gray)...Is there a way to fix this? I''m using the VC dialog editor and I tried to set the transparent option for the text control to true but nothing happened, it looked the same... Thanks!

subclass textboxes and override WM_CTLCOLOR[STATIC?], or try adding a common controls manifest to your exe file.
