Is there a reason you don't just set the BackColor property of the panel to Color.<whatever named color you want> ?

Yes, want to do that on a devexpress panel called the grouppanel. But setting the property BackColor to Info isn't working. Peter.

Oke, I have chosen the DevExpress group control instead of the standard panel.
changing the back color of a GroupControl, you'll need to set the LookAndFeel.UseDefaultLookAndFeel property to false, and the LookAndFeel.Style property to Flat.

Err... the thanks was for posting your answer. I shouldn't get points if mine wasn't the correct one.
