I am building a windows forms application in Visual Basic.Net in VS 2005. I have one form set up as the MDI parent form. Regardless of what color I set the background of the MDI parent to, it comes up as a dark gray. At run time the background is transparent so that when there are no child forms open you can see others apps in the background.
I can get the form to tile an image as the background but that is not how I want to form to look. How can I set the background color of an MDI form?
