    I am using the Office2007 skin for the Tabstrip control and need to change the background color from that light blue to another color.

    Following instructions from another post, I created the following style:

    .customBackground {
      background-color:  #eeeeee  !important;
    }

    Then added the style to the CssStyle property of the tabstrip.

    It does not override the Office2007 background color.  

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Jaime

    Since all of the Telerik skins are using CSS sprites I believe you have to replace the style by either removing the image and then setting the element's background color or setting a new image. For more information on this I would say read over the custom skin tutorial. Another easy alternative would be to use the Visual Style Builder and see if you can create your desired behavior through this application, it's very nifty :D
