        I am using  RibbonTabControl for creating menus and have added ToolStripButton Controls.But i want to change the colour scheme i.e. by default on mouse hover the backcolor of control changes to Blue and i want to change the background colour of the control to different colour.So kindly suggest how to acheive this functionality.

Hi Ranjan,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

We would like to let you know the reported requirement can be achieved by using the ButtonBackgroundSelected property in Office2013ColorTable. Please have the below code snippets to change the ButtonBackground color of the ToolStripTabItem when the mouse is hover on it.
