Hi Kenneth Jackson,
RadLabel's BackColor property is an ambient property
. This means that if not explicitly set for a control, the property will take its value from the parent container control. Therefore, if you want to create a theme with transparent background, the RadLabel's RootElement BackColor
property should be set to Transparent.
As far as I can understand, you have already tried this approach. However, I also tested the case and it worked correctly on my side. I am attaching a sample theme to demonstrate this. Just drag and drop a RadLabel on the form and apply the theme to it. The background color should turn to transparent. If you continue experiencing any issues concerning this case, please open a new support ticket and send me a sample project and a sample theme, which I will analyze further.
I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.
