I''m using a gridcontrol where I set a background picture in some of the header cells like this:
gridControl1[0,0].BackgroundImage = this.Device.DeviceType.IedBitmap;
I have syncfusion version 184.108.40.206 installed.
The background images has always been displayed properly till I installed windows XP SP2 then they doesn''t show up anymore. I have checked it on a second PC as well running XP SP2 and it''s the same problem.
Any idea what it could be?

I am running
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
and tried this code in 220.127.116.11. It did not seem to have a problem for me.
this.gridControl1[0,0].BackgroundImage = SystemIcons.Information.ToBitmap();
Do you have themes enabled? This will interfere with header drawing.
If you post your bitmap, I can try it here.

Yes that was the problem. I had themes enabled in my grid controls. I disabled it and it worked fine.
However is there a way to still have themes enabled and get the backround images to show up?
Why is XP themes interfering with backround bitmaps?

I think the operating system themed drawing does its own background, so the only solution I would know would be to turn the themed support off for that cells where you want a backgroundimage, this.gridControl1[0,0].Themed = false;
