Is there a way to change the color of DisplayName / name of Screen-Tab? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm developing a business app in Lightswitch VB. I've got a screen that collects data with several fields being required (in the database) and others not. 

    At some point the data record is to be pushed or copied (StoredProcedure) to an other database. 

    Therefor I wanted to be sure that some not required fields are filled before calling the StoredProcedure and the user has to see which fields are still empty. I used the following code:

    If Me.MainTelephone = Nothing Then
                    results.AddPropertyResult("Value of MainTelephone is empty", ValidationSeverity.Informational)
                End If

    This works nicely, but the screen has several tabs and I want to mark the title of the tab (where the empty field is located) red and maybe bold. That way the user catches sight of it directly, rather than switching through all tabs looking for this empty field.

    Is there any way to do that?

    Regards & thanks in advance,
