Public Overrides Property BackColor As Color

Property Value

The specified background color for the style.

Attributes

Exceptions

The BackColor property was accessed at run time.

-or-

An attempt was made to set the property.

Remarks

Unlike the other properties, the BackColor property is not inherited from its parent. For example, if you set the BackColor property to cyan on a parent control, a child control will not inherit the background color of cyan. You must explicitly set the child control's BackColor property to cyan, or you must set the BackColor property of the parent control and apply the style sheet to the child control. This is consistent with the behavior of cascading style sheets.
