Change colour of tab text in DockManager


I have a form with UltraDockManager 9.2 that displays several forms as tabbed child panes. When a user hits the Update button on a tab, I'd like to change the colour of its tab text so they know which tab is in update mode. Is that possible?

Thanks, John

    I've found the answer, I was looking at the wrong class/property.

    It's "DockableControlPane:Settings:TabAppearance:ForeColor = System.Drawing.SystemColors:ActiveCaption".

    I store the current ForeColor before I change it then reset it when the tab returns to non-update mode.
