    I am currently building a theme, based on the supplied Metro. I'm pretty sure this wasn't an issue in the previous version of the Winforms controls, but under the latest version (Q1 2014), I'm having an issue with the background colour of the QuickAccess bar. 

    When located in the window title, the caption bar it coloured correctly.


    However, when located below the ribbon, I want the bar that goes the full length of the window to be a different shade. To achieve this, I've changed the background colour of RadRibbonBar-RadRibbonBarElement-RadRibbonBarElement. This colours the strip correctly, but unfortunately, when the QuickAccess bar goes below the ribbon there is also an artefact in the application icon.


    Is this a bug or am I missing a background setting elsewhere?

    Cheers

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I am not sure that I understood your scenario completely. Can you please elaborate in what case the QuickAccessToolbar will be located below the ribbon? Also if possible, to achieve best results, please send me your custom theme so I can answer your questions accordingly.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Whoops, I should've pictures with the original post.

    So this is what the window looks like in the normal situation


    You can then use the little arrow drop down menu to select Show Below the Ribbon. When I do so, I get the following


    As you can see I have made the background strip that goes along the entire window, a pale green, by changing the property I mention above. However, I also seem to have the same colour behind the application icon


    How do I get the theme to you?

    Cheers

    Apparently, I did post images, but they aren't shown in the post. So I attach them here

    Just noticed something interesting. When there's a contextual ribbon group, the group name gets pushed along by about the same with as the artefact behind the icon. Notice in the attached image, the 2 structure names are not lined up as they should be. This suggests that perhaps there's actually some shape or border there that shouldn't be

    This moving of the contextual ribbon group header occurs in the standard Metro Blue theme as well, which suggests it's an inherent issue with the new versions of the controls

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for replying.

    I was not able to observe the same behavior in the TelerikMetroBlue theme, you can see attached a screenshot below.

    In this case I would like to kindly ask you to either let me know how to reproduce it in the TelerikMetroBlue theme or provide me with yours, so I can on the other hand provide you with more adequate support.

    Please note that you have to open a new support ticket in order to be able to attach your theme.

    I am looking forward to your response.
