Background color

Is there a way to set the background color or backstyle transparent??
If not, can you add these properties?

Hi,

The TabStrip control is based on the system's native SysTabControl32 control, which is implemented in comctl32.dll. Drawing is done by comctl32.dll. I've tried different approaches to customize drawing of this specific area of the control, but all failed. Comctl32.dll seems to be hardcoded to use the COLOR_BTNFACE system color to draw the tab control's background.
