I've searched throuh the forum but did non found the answer I was looking for. I've created my own UserControl to add them to my custom commandbar in Outlook, works but the background of the control is gray and I'm unable to make it transparent or to paint it as the rest of the commandbar look like.

A code sample would be appreciate.

Thank you,

Hi Nicolas,

We described some ideas on how to paint your controls in Office style on the Add-in Express technical blog.
