    Hello Hamid,

    Thank you for writing.

    RadPageView uses separate styles for its different modes. Here is how you can define the color of the selected page header in StripView mode:

    1. Open the desired theme in Visual Style Builder (Loading predefined themes) and select the RadPageViewStripItem elements in the control's structure - RadPageView - RadPageViewStripElement - StripViewItemContainer - StripViewItemLayout - RadPageViewStripItem.

    2. Since the element uses ImageShape, you have to change the image used for the following states:
    - RadPageViewStripItem.Selected;
    - RadPageViewStripItem.Selected.MouseOver;
    - RadPageViewStripItem.Selected.MouseDown.

    For example to make it red please follow these steps:
    - Create an image 1 px by 1 px with paint and color this pixel in red
    - Select the Selected state of the RAdPageVireStripItem
    - Click the Show Only Applied Repositories check box
    - Double click the PageViewItemSelectedImageShape repository
    - Set the red pixel image to the Image property
    - Set the PaintMode to Tile

    Attached you can find a sample red image.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
