    Can't figure out how to make the background of the Content area transparent, so the background set on the item behind it shows through. There's nothing similar to ItemContainerStyle.

    Hello Jerome,

    You can control the Background of the content of the tabs trhough the RadTabControl Background property. Therefore using the such a definition:
        <DataTemplate x:Key="HeaderTemplate">
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Header}" />
        <DataTemplate x:Key="ContentTemplate">
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Content}" />
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="Green" >
        <telerik:RadTabControl x:Name="radTabControl"
                    ContentTemplate="{StaticResource ContentTemplate}"
                    ItemTemplate="{StaticResource HeaderTemplate}"
    will display the RadTabControl like so:

    Give this a try and let us know if this is what you had in mind.

    Best wishes,
