    Color of tab control (2000)

    Can the color be changed for a tab control on a form. Its default color is grey, and there is not a color setting on the properties sheet.

    No, you're stuck with default grey. Your only option would be to set tab control's Back Style property to Transparent and then the section back color would be displayed beneath any controls placed on the tab control. The tabs themselves (or buttons) would still be generic grey, however. Other option is to add a rectangle on a tab control page, set back style to normal and set back color to desired color. You may have to use Format > Send to Back command to make sure the rectangle doesn't obscure any controls inside its borders. Combined with first option you may achieve desired effect.

    You can't hide the tab strip itself that way, though. It stays gray no matter what. You can hide it by creating a subform sized to cover it and setting the subform's backcolor to whatever you've used for the tab control's backcolor using one of the other methods. The subform will always float to the top and hide the tab strip.
