Customize the font style and backcolor

In TabControlAdv, you can customize the Font style and Tab back color by using “Font”, “ActiveTabColor” and “InactiveTabColor” properties. The following code example demonstrates the same.

C#

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // Changing the document tab background color
   if(colorDialog1.ShowDialog() != DialogResult.Cancel)
   {
     tabControlAdv1.ActiveTabColor = colorDialog1.Color;
   }
}
private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // Changing the document tab Font.
   if(fontDialog1.ShowDialog() != DialogResult.Cancel)
   {
     tabControlAdv1.Font = fontDialog1.Font;
   }
}
private void button3_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // Changing the document tab background color
   if(colorDialog1.ShowDialog() != DialogResult.Cancel)
   {
     tabControlAdv1.InactiveTabColor = colorDialog1.Color;
   }
}

VB

Private Sub button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles button1.Click
   'Changing the document tab background color
   If colorDialog1.ShowDialog() <> System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel Then
     tabControlAdv1.ActiveTabColor = colorDialog1.Color
   End If
End Sub
Private Sub button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles button2.Click
   'Changing the document tab Font.
   If fontDialog1.ShowDialog() <> System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel Then
     tabControlAdv1.Font = fontDialog1.Font
   End If
End Sub
Private Sub button3_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles button3.Click
   'Changing the document tab background color
   If colorDialog1.ShowDialog() <> System.Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Cancel Then
     tabControlAdv1.InactiveTabColor = colorDialog1.Color
   End If
End Sub
