Thank you for writing.
I would like to note that when you create a new project
you can use the Outlook-inspired VS template that we offer. Please refer to the attached screenshot.
As to question about changing the color of RadRibbonBar
, it is necessary to set the RibbonBarElement.TabStripElement.ContentArea.BackColor
property to the desired color and the RibbonBarElement.TabStripElement.ContentArea.GradientStyle
property to Solid
. Feel free to use the RadControlSpyForm
when you want to identify what element exactly you need to customize.
.radRibbonBar1.RibbonBarElement.TabStripElement.ContentArea.BackColor = Color.Red;
.radRibbonBar1.RibbonBarElement.TabStripElement.ContentArea.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid;
I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
