Is there a way to have custom colors for Ribbonbar control?

I know there is a way to use Themes. But currently I don't want to use Themes.

All the properties, events, and functions of RibbonBar are listed here: https://docs.appeon.com/appeon_online_help/pb2019r2/objects_and_controls/ch02s90.html

I don't see a way you can do custom colors and not use UI themes.  It is my understanding that RibbonBar was designed to work with UI themes.

Hi Armeen,

Thank you for your answer. This is what I already thought.

I can't understand why this new control does not support to specify colors like all other Powerbuilder controls.

So I will try to define a custom Theme that only affect ribbonbar but not the other parts.

In the json file of the theme, you can try setting Drawing to false on all other controls except the ribbon and change the colors in the ribbon in there too.

Yes, this is the way I solved it.
