I am trying to change the color of the (opened Backstage) left-side area background, but it doesn't work.

Could you please guide me?

Hi,

it's not possible by the time. I'm gonna set it on the ToDo List.

Hi,

you can download the latest source code and rebuild the project to change the background color

XAML:

 

<Fluent:BackstageTabControl Name="TabControl" ItemsPanelBackground="Beige">
  some content here
</Fluent:BackstageTabControl>

C#:

TabControl.ItemsPanelBackground = Brushes.Beige;

VB:

TabControl.ItemsPanelBackground = Brushes.Beige

remember that the listed items are transparent (so you should choose a lighter color)

You have to do it in the top.
<Fluent:MetroWindow x:Class="MainWindow"
                    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
                    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
                    xmlns:Fluent="clr-namespace:Fluent;assembly=Fluent"
                    ResizeMode="CanResizeWithGrip"
                    RibbonThemeColor="#2C7BB4"
                    FlowDirection="LeftToRight" Foreground="White">
