Gets or sets the background color for the TabPage.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The default value of the property is the value of the Control.DefaultBackColor property unless the UseVisualStyleBackColor and Application.RenderWithVisualStyles property values are both true and the Appearance property of the parent TabControl has a value of Normal, in which case the default value of the property is Transparent. Child controls that you place on the TabPage inherit the value by default, so this behavior causes the background of the child controls to render with the current visual style.
Changing the value of the property automatically sets the UseVisualStyleBackColor property to false. If you want the TabPage background to render using visual styles but you want the child controls to inherit a value that you specify, set the UseVisualStyleBackColor property after you set the property.
