vb.net - tab control background color
this is the first time i've seen the developer message board. i know there are a lot of good developers on here, so i thought i'd ask as question or two. I currently working on skin support for my weather program. I've added images to the buttoms and the ability to change text and background color. However, i can't seem to change the options on the part of the tab control that doesn't have tabs on it. i attached the screenshot w/ a red "X" where i'm having the problems. I've tried changing the tabcontrol.backcolor, each tabpage.backcolor, but while these change the backgrounds of the tabs, it does not change the background color of this area.
