    I have created a new theme and in that theme I want the RadLabel to default with a transparent background.
    I assumed this was the backcolor of the Fillprimitive , but that has not worked.

    I then went as far as to make the backcolor of all the primitives and even the rootelement itself transparent , but still when I apply the new theme the backcolor is always that of 'control'.

    So my first question is , is this bugged or am I missing something and secondly which is in fact the correct property to set for this ? (ie: the backcolor belonging to which primitive?)

    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.
    Best wishes,
