How difficult is it to change the text color on a CExtTabPageContainerOneNoteWnd tab? I got changing the back ground color under control but I need to change the text color. Thanks.

If you need to customize tab colors, just override the CExtTabOneNoteWnd::OnTabWndQueryItemColors virtual method. There you will find a number of parameters which used for colorizing tab’s background and text colors in any tab state (selected, hover, enabled/disabled)

class CMyTabPageContainerWndOneNote : public CExtTabPageContainerOneNoteWnd
    class CMyTabWndOneNote : public CExtTabOneNoteWnd
                        virtual void OnTabWndQueryItemColors(
                                   LONG nItemIndex,
                                   bool bSelected,
                                   bool bHover,
                                   bool bEnabled,
                                   COLORREF * pclrBorderLight = NULL,
                                   COLORREF * pclrBorderDark = NULL,
                                   COLORREF * pclrBkLight = NULL,
                                   COLORREF * pclrBkDark = NULL,
                                   COLORREF * pclrText = NULL

    virtual CExtTabWnd * OnTabWndGetTabImpl()
        return new CExtTWPC < CMyTabWndOneNote >;
