Lo crowd,

I am testing the Tabstrip component (.Net 1.1) right now and must say that I am hiighly impressed. However, before I buy I need to solve one last issue:

Can the Renderer-properties for TabStripContainerBackgroundFill be set programmatically and if so how?

FYI I need this to blend the tabs into an image that is placed right above the TabStrip component. This works really nice from within the IDE but because the image is variable I can't rely on that.

TIA,

Bravo

Yes, you just need to cast to the appropriate renderer like this for example:
((VisualStudio2005ToolWindowTabStripRenderer)tabStrip.RendererResolved).TabStripTabContainerBackgroundFill = new ImageBackgroundFill(image, ImageBackgroundFillStyle.Tile);

Thanks for the quick reply.

What are my chances on getting a VB example?

I believe that would be this:
CType(tabStrip.RendererResolved, VisualStudio2005ToolWindowTabStripRenderer).TabStripTabContainerBackgroundFill = New ImageBackgroundFill(Image, ImageBackgroundFillStyle.Tile)
