    Form colour (2003)

    Hi, I have applied a specific colour format to a form yet have not been able to find the property which applies the colour to a couple of areas of the form - the tab control to the right of the last tab, and to the right of the record navigation buttons at the bottom of the form. I've searched all through the property sheet and am obviously overlooking something obvious. Could someone point out what I am failing to see?

    I see that the command buttons on the header have also not taken the colour.

    Thank you!
    Roger

    You can't change either of them within Access. They are specified in the Appearance tab of the Display Properties control panel in Windows, i.e. it is a user-level setting.

    As Hans said, you can't change the color of the areas you specified.

    For the tab control, however, you can make the tabs wide enough to completely cover that area. Try this code:

    tabCtl.TabFixedWidth = (((tabCtl.Width - 60) / tabCtl.Pages.Count) 15) * 15
    tabCtl.Width = tabCtl.TabFixedWidth * tabCtl.Pages.Count + 60
