Cell Background image in gridcontrol not displayed if XP SP2

Hi, 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 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? Best Regards Tommy Norman

I am running OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600 and tried this code in 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? Regards Tommy

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;
