In SyntaxEditor 3.1, I was able to set the entire document's background color with the SyntaxEditor.BackColor property. That no longer functions in version 4.0. That is, the property can be set, but the appearance does not change. I can't find anything about it in the documentation, so please, how does one accomplish this task now?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Adam,

Yes in v4.0 we use a renderer model that lets you completely customize how the control is rendered. You can access it via the SyntaxEditor.RendererResolved property. The default renderer in use is a VisualStudio2005SyntaxEditorRenderer. That should have various BackgroundFill properties on it like TextAreaBackgroundFill that let you customize the background. You can use a SolidColorBackgroundFill to make it whatever color you want.
