Remarks

The XtraTabPage.AllowGlyphSkinning property specifies whether, for an individual XtraTabPage, its icon should be painted with the same color as its header text. This property overrides the AllowGlyphSkinning property, which specifies the same color for the entire XtraTabControl. The image below illustrates the XtraTabControl with two pages that have the same icon. The second page is painted with the Glyph Skinning feature.

XtraTabControl - AllowGlyphSkinning

XtraTabPage foreground colors can be customized via the corresponding property in the PageAppearance.Header object.

For best visual results, we recommend the gray-scaled icons from the DevExpress Image Gallery for all elements, painted using the Glyph Skinning feature.

XtraTabControl is not the only control that supports this feature. See the Glyph Skinning topic for the complete control list.
