Hello,

I am using the Outlook 2007 style on RadPanelBar. It is missing one thing from Outlook though:

When you have selected a RadPanelBarGroupElement, it is not highlighted in color. The color disappears when you remove the mouse cursor.

Is it somehow possible to resemble this behaviour?

Hello Martin Bo,

Thank you for writing.

In order to implement this appearance, you should set appropriate colors for the selected group in the RadPanelBar_PanelBarGroupSelected event handler and to reset the colors of the last selected group.

Please refer to the following code snippet:

public partial class Form1 : Form  
{  
    RadPanelBarGroupElement lastSelected = null;  
 
    public Form1()  
    {  
        InitializeComponent();  
    }  
 
    private void radPanelBar1_PanelBarGroupSelected(object sender, PanelBarGroupEventArgs args)  
    {  
        if (lastSelected != null)  
        {  
            RadPanelBarVisualElement resetCaption = lastSelected.GetCaptionElement();  
            resetCaption.ResetValue(VisualElement.BackColorProperty);  
            resetCaption.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColor2Property);  
            resetCaption.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColor3Property);  
            resetCaption.ResetValue(LightVisualElement.BackColor4Property);  
        }  
 
        RadPanelBarVisualElement groupFill = args.Group.GetCaptionElement();  
        groupFill.BackColor = Color.Yellow;  
        groupFill.BackColor2 = Color.Orange;  
        groupFill.BackColor3 = Color.Orange;  
        groupFill.BackColor4 = Color.Orange;  
 
        lastSelected = args.Group;  
    }  

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Thank you! It works great.

I personally believe this should be standard behavior, since you are trying to emulate "Outlook2007".

Is this already available in the latest version?

I think it is not... Maybe, a usefull way would be to make possible to define this via the Theme...

Hi Stargazer,

Thank you for contacting us.

We are agree that it will be useful feature if this could be set through the theme. Current version does not support this but we will add it in some of the next release. Currently, you could use the code provided in previous message to implement such of behavior.

If you have other questions, do not hesitate to contact me again.

Kind regards,
