Tab Control and Rectangle Hiding Controls

I'm trying to change the back colour of a tab control in Access 2010 by 
using a rectangle.
I've selected the tab control (not an individual page) and pasted the 
rectagle (solid with required colour).
I then send the rectangle to the back and then the tab control to the back.
The problem is that most (but not all controls remain hidden) on each tab. 
Subform and list boxes are visible, but labels and text boxes aren't.
I've done this before in another application, but can't remember how I did 
it.
Any ideas?

Not sure I understand your issue.  Anyway, check in properties and set the background to transparent.

Thanks Patrick.
But if I set the rectangle background to transparent, it defeats the purpose 
of using it as a background colour for the tab control.

Aha!
I changed the Tab Control background to transparent and it now works fine.

Tab control in one of the tabs of another tab control
One of my colleagues is working with a tab control. He has several tabs. He is trying to embed another tab control inside one of the tabs of the first tab control. He had placed the second tab control inside one of the tabs of the first tab control. But the problem is that the second tab control does not show up (unless one goes to the block diagram and double clicks the second tab control, only then does it shows up; when the vi is closed and reopened its again not there). I told him that I had never seen such functionality (a tab control inside another tab control) in any application but is ...

Long pull down menu of tab control. References to controls on page of tab control.
Folks, &nbsp; two questions regarding a tab control: &nbsp; 1. &nbsp; I am using a tab control for offering the user various sub menus. The tabs are switched invisible. Instead I am using the page labels display for control of the tab. The list of available sub-menus (tabs) has already become quite long so that a pull down menu with a scrollbar appears (See attached screenshot). However, the scrollbar is not very convenient and not actually needed. Does anyone know how I could avoid this scrollbar? &nbsp; 2. &nbsp; I would like to get all the references of all controls of...

How do I put a control on a certain page of a tab control, instead of the WHOLE tab control
I am trying to put a 3D surface plot onto one page of a tabbed control, but Labview insists on putting it on top of the whole tabbed control, so that you can't look at different pages. What's the deal? Hi John, I made a test with LV 7.0. I can put the 3D Surface Graph into a page of the tab control. Move the 3D Surface Graph from the tab control onto a blank area of the front panel. Move the 3D Surface Graph back onto the page you want it. Be sure to get a black broken line around the page. Then release the mouse button. If you lay the 3D Surface Graph partly on the tab control it w...

tab control inside another tab control
Hi. Is it possible to put a tab control inside another tab control. I tried it several times, but for some reason this doesn't seem to work. Can someone confirm this, or tell me what the trick is. Thanks. -- Georges The only way I know to do this is to put a subform on the first tab control. Then you can put your second tab control on the subform. If you do this repeatedly, however, you will find the form loading rather slowly.

Control + Tab between subforms on tab control pages ACC 2002
Greetings! What I am looking for is help trying to accomplish control + tab exiting subform #1 on page #1 and entering the first control (main form) on page #2. I've tried the following code, however it seems to "fire twice", placing me at the first control on subform #2 on page #3, totally skipping page #2. It seems to very briefly stop the control on page two, but keeps going. Hope that made sense. Key preview for subform is set to yes. This is a continous subform, so options to leave subform on last control won't work. That's why I'm trying to use control tab....
