Hi;

How can I increase the number of colors used in colored tab controls when using OneNoteColors?
Now the color is repeated after 8 tabs (see screenshot).


If this is not possible with OneNoteColors, how can I get colored tabs in another way?

TIA
Martin

Product: Xtreme Toolkit v 15.3.1, new Projects v 18.5.0

Hello Martin,

These colors defined in static method CXTPTabPaintManager::GetOneNoteColor(XTPTabOneNoteColor). You can increase number of colors  by adding new constants in enum XTPTabOneNoteColor.
enum XTPTabOneNoteColor
{
    xtpTabColorBlue    = 0x1000000, // Blue tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
    xtpTabColorYellow  = 0x1000001, // Yellow tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
    xtpTabColorGreen   = 0x1000002, // Green tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
    xtpTabColorRed     = 0x1000003, // Red tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
    xtpTabColorPurple  = 0x1000004, // Purple tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
    xtpTabColorCyan    = 0x1000005, // Cyan tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
    xtpTabColorOrange  = 0x1000006, // Orange tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.

    xtpTabColorNew    = 0x1000007, // Orange tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.

    xtpTabColorMagenta = 0x1000008  // Magenta tab color used when OneNote colors enabled.
};

Leave color xtpTabColorMagenta as last  to prevent changes in CXTPTabClientWnd::CWorkspace::GetItemColor() and CXTPTabManager::GetItemColor()

As other way you can change these two methods to return custom colors.

Also as the easyest way  you can set custom color right to CXTPTabManagerItem::m_clrItem. (CXTPTabManagerItem::SetColor(COLORREF)) If that value will be from 0x1000000 to 0x1000007  then it means predefined colors from xtpTabColorBlue to xtpTabColorMagenta. Other values will be used directly as colors.
See Samples\ToolkitPro\MDITabWindow\ChildWnd.cpp  CChildWnd::OnGetTabColor()

Regards,
