Title: How to change the fill color of container (not container heading)
Post by: brazilnut on January 07, 2015, 10:41:17 AM
I have some objects and have grouped them with a container. I have changed the color of the container header and I now need to change the background color of the rest of the container (the main non-header area). How do I do that?

I think the most easy way is to add a rectangle filled with color in the container.
But the margin needs to be set to zero.

Here is my example drawing.

Thanks for the reply. My containers are rounded rectangles. Any ideas with this attached example to change the white to blue for example?

Though you need to work hard, you can do.
1. Open drawing explorer. If not installed download Visio SDK from Microsoft MSDN home page and install.
2. Open shapesheet of sheet.5 as indicated picture.
3. Edit data in Fill Fore Ground cell into GUARD(RGB(0,255,255)).

Here is my example drawing.
