Java program to set the color of a single tab’s text in a JTabbedPane Container

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

To set the the color of a single tab’s text, use the setForegroundAt() method. This gives an option to mention the index and the color. The index here is the index of the specific tab you want to color the text.

Let us first create a JTabbedPane −

JTabbedPane tabbedPane = new JTabbedPane();

Now, set the background color for one of the tabs with index 2 −

tabbedPane.setForegroundAt(2, Color.RED);

The following is an example wherein we will update the foreground color of a single tab in the JTabbedPane −

Example

package my;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
public class SwingDemo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
      JFrame frame = new JFrame("Devices");
      JTabbedPane tabbedPane = new JTabbedPane();
      JTextArea text = new JTextArea(100,100);
      JPanel panel1, panel2, panel3, panel4, panel5, panel6, panel7, panel8;
      panel1 = new JPanel();
      panel2 = new JPanel();
      panel2.add(text);
      panel3 = new JPanel();
      panel4 = new JPanel();
      panel5 = new JPanel();
      panel6 = new JPanel();
      panel7 = new JPanel();
      panel8 = new JPanel();
      tabbedPane.setBackground(Color.yellow);
      tabbedPane.setForeground(Color.black);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Laptop", panel1);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Desktop ", panel2);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Notebook", panel3);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Echo ", panel4);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Tablet", panel5);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Alexa ", panel6);
      tabbedPane.addTab("Notebook", panel7);
      tabbedPane.addTab("iPad", panel8);
      tabbedPane.setForegroundAt(2, Color.RED);
      frame.add(tabbedPane);
      frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      frame.setSize(550,350);
      frame.setVisible(true);
   }
}
