I want to change the background color of the
groupbaritems, I try to do this with the backgroundbrush property (I need to apply a Brush object), but this is working just with the XP visual style, Is there a way to do this with the office 2003 visual style?

Hi Dudi,

You would have to derive the GroupBar class and override the DrawGroupBarItem method to customize the background color of the GroupBarItem in a GroupBar. Below are the codes:

public class MyGroupBar : GroupBar
public MyGroupBar(): base()

protected override void DrawGroupBarItem(Graphics gfxTarget, int nindex, Rectangle rcbar)
base.DrawGroupBarItem(gfxTarget, nindex, rcbar);
gfxTarget.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(Color.Red), rcbar);

Best regards,
