    Hi Alcatraz,

    Thank you for writing.

    Actually, RadToolStrip does not support adding a background image. However, you can manually extend the default behavior by adding an ImagePrimitive to its elements. Please consider the following code snippet:
    ImagePrimitive imagePrimitive = new ImagePrimitive();
    imagePrimitive.Image = global::Test_RadToolStrip.Properties.Resources.my_background_image;                    
    this.radToolStrip1.ToolStripManager.Children[0].Children.Add(imagePrimitive);

    You have to keep in mind that there is a limitation on this implementation: RadToolStrip's layout does not allow for stretching the image in the added ImagePrimitive element.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Kind regards,
