Make current sheet tab stand out

I notice that the current sheet tab shows the name of the sheet in bold but are there any suggestion on making the current sheet tab stand out more so the user clearly knows which tab they are on?

Re: Make current sheet tab stand out

Hi Cassandra,

Have a look at this thread: http://community.qlik.com/thread/29616

By creating a variable and using sheet triggers (OnActivateSheet) you can set the tab colour of the "active" sheet to a specified colour, which helps it stand out a bit more.

I would not bother with the triggers as demonstrated in the referenced thread. You can test the GetActiveSheetId() in the tab color expression.

=if(GetActiveSheetId()='Document\SH01', red(), white())
