Theming controls

Trying to theme controls on taskpanes.

All controls have their style elements disabled and ParentColor and ParentFont values set to true.

If I set UseOfficeThemeForBackground to true, the color of the pane matches the office theme, but the controls on the pane do not update to match the background.

If I disable UseOfficeThemeForBackground and manually change the pane eg


My controls' colours update as expected.

Does anyone know why this isn't happening using UseOfficeThemeForBackground?

Hi Mark,

What controls do you use on your pane? We have just tested standard controls and they work as expected. Could you please send your project (or a small demo project that reproduces the issue) to us for testing?
