Hi all

Is there a way to color individual tabs (or rather the labels of said tabs) of an org.eclipse.scout.rt.client.ui.forms.fields.tabbox.AbstractT abBox instance? Using setForegroundColor() on the individual GroupBox contained in the TabBox only colors the "body" text of the GroupBox, but not the tab label itself. There doesn't seem to exist anything like "setLabelForegroundColor()".

Thanks and kind regards

Arthur

Thanks for the post.
What would be the code in swt (or swing) to set the bg color of a tab?
We currently already have the workaround in swing that we paint the whole tab header as an icon (including text) since swing is not capable of styling the tab header text.

Therefore in swing we could have styling support for tab headers (bg, fg).

In SWT i am currently unsure about the possibilities of setting bg.

Thanks for your fast reply. With Swing I'd use setForegroundAt() and setBackgroundAt() on a JTabbedPane. With SWT I'm not sure I've ever seen it.

So it isn't possible currently to either change the fore- or the background of individual tabs?

SWT: Even though it is possible to color the tabs with the use of the CTabFolder it is not possible to have different colors for the single tabs (CTabItem) as far as I know.

So to answer your question: No it is not possible at the moment.

Thanks Claudio.

Using icons instead of text or background coloring doesn't seem to be supported either. Both SWT and Swing would support that. Is there a favorized way of adapting GUI elements on a per project base?

Hi Arthur

I do not know if icons in tabboxes are supported so far but I recommend to create a change request ticket if you need it.

If you can't wait you could create your own tabbox and replace the existing one. A description how to to this can be found here:

Hope that helps.

Regards
Claudio
