Tab backcolor in a Selector

Postby Bruno » April 28th, 2017, 11:04 am

Hi,

Managing tab's backcolor (not the entire page !) in a Selector is not very easy ! If someone already did it, I'll be very happy to know the how to...

Excel can do it ! APL could do it ! :)

A "Page" property called for instance "TabBackColor" will be very usefull !

Lotus 1-2-3 Rel 5 could do it (in 1995).

Would you mind posting a before and after picture showing off this feature in Excel? We're just not familiar with it.

Thanks,

In Excel 2003, Format -> Sheet -> Tab Color brings up a 32-way selector for the color of the tab
In Excel 2013, right-clicking on the tab itself creates a small menu, of which Tab Color is one of the elements. It brings up a similar selector window

It might be nice to have that option on the APL.Grid object tabs as well, though I don't personally need it at the moment.

Hi,

Thank you for all responses (and apologies for my rude english...).

Finally, I choose this solution : put a colored bitmap into the tab.
Like a standard button, I declare the bmp file in the selector's "imagelist", and I use this file in the page's "imageIndex".

Have a nice day,

Bruno.
