Customization of TabStrip/TabItems in TabControlAdv

we use the TabControlAdv in a silverlight application. Now we are looking to customize the appearance of the tabstrip and/or the tabitems. We would like to have a different color for the tabitem.

If I change the TabItem.Background property, it only affects the area where the header (text) is located. Is there a way to customize the color of the tabitem or the tabstrip? Best would be a gradient brush.

Furthermore I found out, that there are two ways to use Visual Styles for the TabControl. One is to the the TabVisualStyle Property: TabCtrl.TabVisualStyle = Syncfusion.Windows.Tools.Controls.TabVisualStyle.ExcelSilver

But afterwards the TabStrip is not displayed properly, because the height is not sufficient anymore. Is there a way to modify the height?

The other one I took from the example included in Essential Studio:

But this one always leads to an exception. Is there any setting I forgot?
In the example there is a sample browser layout. Is this necessary?

Best regards,

Andreas Kostian
