How to change the default colors of the main-menu, drop-down menus, toolbars, etc.

Platform: WinForms |
Control: XPToolbar |

The MenuColors class includes some static properties used to get a custom BG color for the different portions of the menus and toolbars. For example: MainMenuBackColor, CommandBarBackColor, and StatusBarBackColor. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:


MenuColors.CommandBarBackColor = Color.LightSteelBlue;

MenuColors.MainMenuBackColor = Color.Blue;

MenuColors.MenuBGColor = Color.SkyBlue;

MenuColors.MenuLeftStripColor = Color.LightSlateGray;


MenuColors.CommandBarBackColor = Color.LightSteelBlue

MenuColors.MainMenuBackColor = Color.Blue

MenuColors.MenuBGColor = Color.SkyBlue

MenuColors.MenuLeftStripColor = Color.LightSlateGray
