How to set the back color of a docked grid (outside the grid)

I have a GridControl docked fill in a panel. The panel has a back color of red (or any other color). If the grid has only a few rows it doesn't reach the bottom of the panel and I would expect the color below to be the panel color but in fact it is the standard windows form color (usually light gray). Setting the grid back color only affects the grid itself and not the space below the grid. How can I see the panel back color if the grid doesn't reach the bottom of the panel?

Using Syncfusion 12.

Best Regards,
Paulo Soares

Nevermind, it's GridControl.Properties.BackgroundColor.
