How to change the forecolor of text being drawn in the tabs of WinForms TabControlAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TabControlAdv

Change the forecolor of text being drawn in tabs

Use the new TabPageExt.TabForeColor property available since our release. For earlier versions, handle the DrawItem event, set the custom forecolor in the DrawTabEventArgs, and delegate drawing to the default drawing logic.


private void TabControlExt_DrawItem(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DrawTabEventArgs drawItemInfo) 
   // Change the ForeColor only on the selected tabs.
   if(((int)drawItemInfo.State & (int)DrawItemState.Selected) == 0)  
     drawItemInfo.ForeColor = Color.White; 
   // Then forward drawing to default drawing logic.


Private  Sub TabControlExt_DrawItem(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal drawItemInfo As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.DrawTabEventArgs) 
   ' Change the ForeColor only on the selected tabs.
   If (CType(drawItemInfo.State & CType(DrawItemState.Selected,int,Integer))) = 0 Then   
     drawItemInfo.ForeColor = Color.White  
   End If
   ' Then forward drawing to default drawing logic.
End Sub
