ToolStrip.BackColor Property

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Gets or sets the background color for the ToolStrip.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Color BackColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color
A Color that represents the background color of the ToolStrip. The default is the value of the DefaultBackColor property.

The BackColor property does not support transparent colors unless the SupportsTransparentBackColor value of System.Windows.Forms.ControlStyles is set to true.

The BackColor property is an ambient property. An ambient property is a control property that, if not set, is retrieved from the parent control. For example, a Button will have the same BackColor as its parent Form by default. For more information about ambient properties, see the AmbientProperties class or the Control class overview.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding the BackColor property in a derived class, use the base class's BackColor property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation. You are not required to override both the get and set accessors of the BackColor property; you can override only one if needed.
