Hello, I am using ribbon:ScreenTipService (ScreenTipHeader, ScreenTipHelpUri, ScreenTipDescription)

1. Is there any way we can change the background color of this tooltip?

2. Also is there a way to change the Separator color that appears just above "Press F1 for more help" text ?

The ribbon:ScreenTip class sets the Background to the AssetResourceKeys.ToolTipBackgroundNormalBrushKey theme brush, and the BorderBrush to the AssetResourceKeys.ToolTipBorderNormalBrushKey theme brush by default.  The separator uses the BorderBrush value.

You could make an implicit Style that targets ribbon:ScreenTip and put it in your Application.Resources with alternate brush values for the Background and BorderBrush properties if you'd like.
