Indeed, changing BackColor
property of the RadComboBox
doesn't change color of the textbox part. This property is inherited from ScrollableControl
which is ancestor of all our controls.
Try implementing this with a new theme based on the default theme for example. If you start the Quick Start examples, select any combobox example and open the Visual Style Builder. Choose RadTextBoxItem
in the Control Structure tree on the left and then add a new state. Then open the state editor and add a state with property Telerik.WinControls.RadElement.IsFocused
and its Value
set to true
. Then set the desired color in the property list on the right. Finally save this theme and use it where you need. You can find an online movie on how to use the Style builder here: http://www.telerik.com/support/videos.aspx
I hope this information helps.
