TabPage.UseVisualStyleBackColor Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the TabPage background renders using the current visual style when visual styles are enabled.

public:
 property bool UseVisualStyleBackColor { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool UseVisualStyleBackColor { get; set; }
member this.UseVisualStyleBackColor : bool with get, set
Public Property UseVisualStyleBackColor As Boolean

Property Value

Boolean

true to render the background using the current visual style; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Remarks

The TabPage background uses the current visual style only when the UseVisualStyleBackColor and Application.RenderWithVisualStyles property values are both true.

When the UseVisualStyleBackColor and Application.RenderWithVisualStyles property values are both true and the Appearance property of the parent TabControl is Normal, the default value of the BackColor property is Transparent. Child controls that you place on the TabPage inherit the BackColor value by default, so this behavior causes the background of the child controls to render with the current visual style.

Changing the value of the BackColor property automatically sets the UseVisualStyleBackColor property to false. If you want the TabPage background to render using visual styles but you want the child controls to inherit a BackColor value that you specify, set the UseVisualStyleBackColor property after you set the BackColor property.
