    Hi all,

     I am using the RadRichTextBox to display a docx file in ReadOnly mode. 

    By default, the RadRichTextBox shows a gray background behind the page. I would like to change this from gray to black, but I cannot figure out how. I would rather not include a theme from telerik in my assembly as this is the only visual change I need to make.

    Just to be clear, I want to change the background behind the page, not the color of the page itself.

    Hi Sean,

    You could change the template of the document layout presenters, which will allow you to change the background color of the RadRichTextBox. If you are using the control in Flow layout mode, you will need the template of the DocumentWebLayoutPresenter and for the Paged layout mode responsible is the DocumentPrintLayoutPresenter. If you will be using both layout modes you can set both styles. For the implementation you could refer to the attached project, which is demonstrating the described approach.

    Hope this helps.
