Hi Arun,

To support transparent background of RadDock control you must setup all BackColor properties of all SplitPanelElement to Transparent:

radDock1.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor  = Color.Transparent;
radDock1.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor2 = Color.Transparent;
radDock1.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor3 = Color.Transparent;
radDock1.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor4 = Color.Transparent;
 
radDock1.MainDocumentContainer.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
radDock1.MainDocumentContainer.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor2 = Color.Transparent;
radDock1.MainDocumentContainer.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor3 = Color.Transparent;
radDock1.MainDocumentContainer.SplitPanelElement.Fill.BackColor4 = Color.Transparent;

Please keep in mind that the RadDock control is dynamic control and its containers for ToolWindows and DocumentWindows are frequently recreated. The best solution in this situation is change colors of SplitPanelElement in Visual Style builder and use your custom theme implementation. More details about theming you can find in our online documentation.

I hope this helps.

Hi Julian Benkov,

I had removed the ContainerFill repository item from MainSplitContainer, InnerSplitContainer and DocumentContainer and set backcolor, backcolor2, backcolor3 and backcolor4 to Transparent. But still it is not working. Any idea ?
