I can't seem to find anything on changing the background color of a standard contextmenu.  Does anyone know how to do this in vb.net?

You have a BackColor property. You can also change the RenderMode property to System

What I found and am doing is creating a new menuitem that inherets the standard one, then modifying it to change the back color and font.
