I am currently looking for a way to set the color of the tabs of docked controls. I have found a relevant message on the forum (http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=16323), but there is no public answer to the user''s problem. Could you please publish it ?
I am not looking for a way to modify the window bar''s color, I already know how to do that (listening to the ProvideGraphicsItems event), but the color of the tab when a control is docked (tab on the right side of the screen for example).
For example, I would like to be able to have a red tab and a yellow tab.

Please take a look at the attached sample and let me know if it meets your requirements.

Thank you for the sample. It gave me a few ideas on how to implement colored tabs. I just had to play around with the docking manager. I think you should integrate this kind of sample in your product documentation.

I have the need as Guillem, although I am a VB.NET guy. I converted the C# example you provided to VB. I am unable to get this to work. Could you please provide an example in VB?
Once I changed my DockingManager to a CustomDockingManager, it no longer docks any controls. I step through the code and watch it execure but nothing is docking.

I''ve created a VB version of the sample. I''ve also enhanced it so that an undocked and then redocked control will still have colored tabs.

One thing that is missing here, is that a color does not ''stick'' to a control... And I think that is what he is looking for.
I''ll create a small demo as soon as I have got time on my hands, would it be possible for Syncfusion to host this example ?
