As I see in archives, this problem was raised some time ago but with no any solution.

Does somebody found the way how to deal with “tabstrip” controls under Windows XP when it has XP style turned on?

The problem is when I compile my app with PerlApp it obeys Windows XP styles and shows tabstips with white background. In the same time all elements placed within the tabstip (like texfields, labels, etc) still have default gray background which looks just awful. Is there a way to avoid this behavior correctly? I’ll appreciate any ideas.


Best regards,
