    We have tried setting the BackColor property of the RadDropDownList in both the designer and in the code behind.  Attempting to set the BackColor to a solid color (ie. this.RadDropDownList.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;) does not see to work.

    We can't seem to find the correct property to set the background color of the RadDropDownList.  How can we set the background color on this control?

    Thank you for any help and information you can provide.

    Hi, 

    From memory, you can use the Visual Style Builder to do this. Or, if you just want to set it simply, then you would need to set Set Enable Theming to False. 
    Hope that helps

    Hi,

    Thanks for the writing.

    In case that you want to set the back color of the text box hosted in RadDropDownList you should use the following code snippet:
    this.radComboBox1.DropDownListElement.TextBox.Fill.BackColor = Color.Red;
    this.radComboBox1.DropDownListElement.TextBox.BackColor = Color.Red;
    this.radComboBox1.DropDownListElement.EditableElement.BackColor = Color.Red;//For DropDownStyle = DropDownList

    This can be also set via Visual Style Builder.

    I hope this helps.
