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

public Color BackColor { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color
The Color that the background of the ToolStrip is painted with.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ToolStripRenderer.RenderToolStripBackground event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from ToolStripRenderer, such as a ToolStripSystemRenderer or ToolStripProfessionalRenderer. Then name the instance ToolStripRenderer1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the ToolStripRenderer.RenderToolStripBackground event.

private void ToolStripRenderer1_RenderToolStripBackground(Object sender, ToolStripRenderEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AffectedBounds", e.AffectedBounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "BackColor", e.BackColor );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ToolStrip", e.ToolStrip );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ConnectedArea", e.ConnectedArea );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "RenderToolStripBackground Event" );
}
