The GridControl supports the TransparentBackground property and BackColor property to set the transparent background color of the grid.

For example, you can set transparent BackColor of GridControl with the following code,

C#

//set up the transparent background
gridControl1.TransparentBackground = true;
gridControl1.SupportsTransparentBackColor = true;
 
//set the color for the transparent background
gridControl1.Properties.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(0, 1, 1, 1);
gridControl1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(0,SystemColors.Window);

 

VB

'set up the transparent background
gridControl1.TransparentBackground = True
gridControl1.SupportsTransparentBackColor = True
 
'set the color for the transparent background
gridControl1.Properties.BackgroundColor = Color.FromArgb(0, 1, 1, 1)
gridControl1.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(0,SystemColors.Window)
