Tab Object

Office 2007
Represents a tab in a chart or a worksheet.


Use the Tab property of the Chart object or Worksheet object to return a Tab object.

Once a Tab object is returned, you can use the ColorIndex property determine the settings of a tab for a chart or worksheet.


In the following example, Microsoft Excel determines if the worksheet's first tab color index is set to none and notifies the user.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub CheckTab()

    ' Determine if color index of 1st tab is set to none.
    If Worksheets(1).Tab.ColorIndex = xlColorIndexNone Then
        MsgBox "The color index is set to none for the first " & _
            "worksheet tab."
        MsgBox "The color index for the tab of the first worksheet " & _
            "is not set none."
    End If

End Sub
