Set the background colour of a RibbonComboBox

I've got a RibbonComboBox sitting on a RibbonBar on a RibbonTab on a Ribbon. From what I observe it is inheriting it's background colour through this chain. I would like to explicitly set it's background colour to White to make it stand out a bit better but setting the background property doesn't seem to work. I notice that I can set the background colour of a RibbonTextBox fine, but not the RibbonComboBox.

Is this directly settable?

Edit> Just to be clear, I want to set the background in it's non-dropped down state. Not e.g. the selection list

Here's a trivial example:-

<Window x:Class="TestComboBolour.MainWindow"








        Title="MainWindow" Height="450" Width="800">



            <sf:RibbonComboBox Background="White" MinWidth="80">

Hi Declan,

We have checked on your query, we suggest you use SkinManager theme to solve this issue. We have prepared a sample which contains RibbonCombobox and Microsoft Combobox both having same behavior when applying Background and Foreground to the control. If you want to customize the Style of RibbonComboboxButton we suggest you to override the ControlTemplate.
