Thanks for writing and for the valuable questions.
With the new version of the VSB released with Q1 2010 you can theme RadForm
by creating a theme for the RadTitleBar
control and RadForm.
The theme for the RadTitleBar
control will be automatically reused in RadForm
as you have already noticed.
In the upcoming Q1 2010 SP1 you will be able to style RadForm
and its title bar separately without having to define styles for the RadTitleBar
control. In other words, you will be able to see the Title Bar metadata as a child metadata nodes of the RadForm
control metadata on the tree view on the left side of the VSB.
You can set the Background color of the Form's Client Area by setting the BackColor
property of the RootRadElement
of the form. This element is populated in the Elements
grid when the RadForm
control is selected.
I hope this helps.
