    I build a wizard based on TabStrip.
    My Idea - disable all items except the current page (wizzard step).

    Works fine - but I want to give the disabled tabs a special "look".
    I want to display it (for an example) in red, while the active pageheader is green.

    I played around with theme builder and added a state "!Enabled" but it does not work

    Any help would be great

    Hi Manfred,

    You are able to achieve disabled controls with a look governed by the theme. You have to set the UseDefaultDisablePaint property of the controls' RootRadElement and of its subelements to false.

    You should use a recursive algorithm to access them and modify the value of this property. I have attached a sample project that demonstrates the use of this algorithm. The BrowseControls() method browses all the controls on the Form and the BrowseElements() method browses the subelements of the RadControls' RootRadElement.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
