    I'm looking for a way to disable the animation that is used when a user has a collapsed RibbonBarElement (RibbonBarElement.Expanded = false) and then interacts with the RadRibbonTabs.  Single clicking a tab in this case opens the tab strip while the tab strip has focus.  Once focus has left the control (user clicks elsewhere), the tab strip returns to a collapsed state.  When it returns to being collapsed, there is an opacity fade effect being applied.  Sometimes when the message pump is busy with other processing going on, this fade effect is looking bad and I can't figure out how to disable it.

    Setting  AnimatedPropertySetting.AnimationsEnabled = false; does not seem to work in this case.  (The particular project I am working with is RadControls WinForms Q1 2010 SP2 - an upgrade is possible in the future for this, but not at this time.  I haven't yet been able to investigate whether there is a visible setting in Q3 2011).

    If anyone has any insight into how to control this, I'd appreciate it.
