I have a RibbonControlAdv and a TabControlAdv.

In each tab I show the user some data. When there's an error in the data he wants to know it somehow.

I was wondering if it's possible to change the color of a Tab or the top of the window? Making the tab with the error in red.

I'm using the Blue office2007 style and the BackColor/TabBackColor property does not seem to be working.

Hi Stephane,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

With the Office2007Style applied to the TabControlAdv, you cannot change its TabBackColor. But you can display the error icon in the tab when its data is wrong and this can be achieved using ImageIndex property of TabPageAdv. Please let me know if this helps you.

Sorry for the late reply.

The icon idea is working great.
