The easiest way to change the BackColor, BorderColor and the grip image is to use the Element hierarchy editor
. To open the editor just click on the smart tag and press edit UI elements
(see the first attached screenshot). Then you can change any properties you want, for example in the second screenshot I have changed the BackColor of the RadStatusStrip.
To reorder the added elements you can use the RadItem Collection Editor
. There you can add remove or reorder the items in any way you want (see third attached picture).
Also to achieve the desired taskbar look you can set the last item Margin
property. You can do that dynamically in the forms resize event handler for example:
sender, EventArgs e)
totalWidth = radStatusStrip1.Width;
elementsWidth = 0;
elementsWidth += item.Size.Width;
emptySpace = totalWidth - elementsWidth;
(emptySpace > 0)
radStatusStrip1.Items[radStatusStrip1.Items.Count - 1].Margin =
System.Windows.Forms.Padding(emptySpace, 0, 0, 0);
I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.
