    I am having problems with setting the BackColor of the RadTabStrip Control.   I have tried setting the BackColor of the control and it has no effect on a standard window.

    I am trying to use this on a RadWindow.

    I have tried Editing the UI Elements too and this has had little effect. 

    Do I need to create a Theme just to change the BackColor of the tab strip?  If so when I create the theme in the new editor it seems to be totally blank and default (almost like a wire frame)  Seems to be totally different to how the 2009 build works.

    Please can someone offer some assistance.  I would like to make the general back colour of the control and tabs white.

    Kind regards

    Hello Neil,

    Thank you for writing.

    Changing those colors is a very easy operation with the provided EditUI menu for our controls. When you select the RadTabStrip simply click on the smart tag and edit those properties that you want. Have in your mind that the settings that you want to change are located in the FillPrimitive. I am attaching a screen shot to guide you on making those changes in your case. This can be done with most of our controls.

    About the Theme creation you can export the build-in themes and then load one of them and modify it by your discretion. Take a look at the following links in our help for more info:

    I hope you find this information helpful.
