    I am using a RadRibbonForm with the Visual Studio 2012 Light theme and I would like to change the color of the status strip when my program is doing some long running calculations (like Visual Studio 2012).  I have tried multiple settings and cannot seem to find the correct setting to change the color of the status strip in code.

    Hi Randy,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can change the color of status strip through its FillPrimitive element. For example:
    FillPrimitive fill = radStatusStrip1.StatusBarElement.Children[1] as FillPrimitive;
    if (fill != null)
        fill.BackColor = Color.Red;

    I hope this helps.
