Element’s background color.


The RGB components.

Values should be between 0 and 255, separated by a blank space. For example "255 0 128", red=255 blue=0 green=128.

Default: It is the value of the DLGBGCOLOR global attribute. On some controls if not defined will inherit the background of the native parent.

Hexadecimal notation in the format "#RRGGBB" is also accepted in all color attributes. For example, "255 0 128" can also be written as "#FF0080".


All controls that have visual representation, but with some restrictions.

Several controls have transparent parts that are not affected by the BGCOLOR.
