There are a number of tools that I need to have to provide a gradient background. XPTaskBarBox''s have the ProvideItemsBackgroundBrush() but most of the other controls do not. I need to have gradient backgrounds for the other parts of the taskbar, as well as other parts of controls that don''t have gradient options

Hi, You should use the XPTaskBar''s paint method and use LinearGradientBrush to draw the Gradient Background. private void xpTaskBar1_Paint(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs e) { Rectangle rc = this.ClientRectangle; int gradientWidth = rc.Width; LinearGradientBrush lgb = new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush( new Point(0, 0), new Point(0, gradientWidth),Color.White, Color.SandyBrown); float[] positions = {0.0f, 0.005f, 0.95f, 1.0f}; float[] factors = {0.4f, 1.0f, 0.05f, 0.4f}; // Blend settings Blend blend = new Blend(); blend.Factors = factors; blend.Positions = positions; lgb.Blend = blend; e.Graphics.FillRectangle(lgb, 0, 0, gradientWidth, rc.Height); lgb.Dispose(); } Please let me know if this meets your requirements. Regards, Mano

Thanks. If I wanted to also do a gradient background or the textbox of a combobox, how would I handle that?
