MM4 - How do I set the background color for tabs?

Post by BlueDragon » Sun Jan 09, 2011 11:38 am

Hi,

I am an absolute beginner in skinning, and have been experimenting a little with existing themes in the theme editor.

In the Wiki I couldn't find an answer to my problem: How do I set a background for the new main tabs in MM4?
I studied the new Pulse theme, 4-Delletronic eee and vitreous but only managed to edit the tabs and not their background.

On this image you can see what I mean:

thanks for help!

Well ,i think you run Xp ,
I'm not 100% sure ,but i think the background from tabs is controlled by the Client from Form / MainForm !

In MM4 are 2 new Tab areas ,Main Tabs and Art and Details Tabs,
by default MM4 use the Tab object from Theme .mskn.
These you can change , you have to make new entries in the settings .ini file.

Code: Select all

Wiki:
[PageControl]
MainWindowTabs=TE_Object_Name - theme name for main window tabs - by default standard Tabs theme is used (introduced in MM4)
CoverWindowTabs=TE_Object_Name - theme name for cover window tabs - by default standard Tabs theme is used (introduced in MM4)
And than create new tab objects in the theme .mskn ,with the same names as in the settings .ini file.
look inside any MM4 skin ,and you will find this objects and ini entrys.

To change the color from tabs ,you have to change the images from Tab objects!

Figured it out:
In the settings.ini file
Turn on the Line under tabs. Set the colour your want. This will show up as the background of the tabs.

CoverWindowTabsLineUnderTabs=1
CoverWindowTabsLineColor=FFFFFF
