Thank you for writing.
as every other control traverses its parents until it finds a parent with a explicitly set Backcolor
property. If such is not found, it will take it from the form since it is the last parent in the hierarchy of controls. Just like in your case, where the group box color is taken from the form, since the RadPageViewPage
and RadPageView Backcolors
are not explicitly set and they hold their default values.
If you want the group box to take the color from the RadPageViewPage
, simply set the group box Backcolor
radGroupBox1.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
However, there is an issue, with the design-time display - it is not refreshed correctly to show you the real backcolor. I have added this issue into our Public Issue Tracking System
. Please follow this link
