Thank you for writing.
The local value, applied to the BackColor
property, overrides the applied styles coming from the theme. That is why the applied color for the hover state is lost. Since Q3 2015
we have introduced a new API for changing the style for a specific element state without losing the applied style for the rest of the states. Please refer to the Override Theme Settings at Run Time
help article which demonstrates how to change the BackColor
without losing the hover style.
I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
