Thank you for contacting us.
By default all tiles are with the same color and this is the default behavior. You should manually change the backcolor properties (BackColor, BackColor2, BackColor3, BackColor4) of the tiles you want to be with different color.
As to the "pulse" effect, it was introduced at a later stage (the SP after the release that introduced RadPanorama) so please make sure you are using the latest version. If you continue experiencing difficulties, please post the contents of your VB files here so I can test them locally.
In regards to your last note about the keyboard navigation, yes this feature is not yet supported by RadPanorama. I have logged a feature request in our Public Issue Tracking System
so you can subscribe to it and track its progress. Here you can find the PITS entry: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/12992
Your Telerik points
have been updated for requesting this feature.
Should you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.
All the best,
the Telerik team
