Eto set border of control

Does anybody know how to set the background color of a panel using Python Eto?

There is no property BackgroundColor for an Eto.Forms.Panel, but as I understand a panel is ultimately an Eto.Forms.Control, which does have this property.

Unfortunately this does not work:

panel = Eto.Forms.Panel()
panel.BackgroundColor = Eto.Drawing.Colors.Blue

How would I go about this?

Maybe because Panel is meant to be inherited in most cases…
So a StackLayout is inherited from Panel and it seems to work fine. In practice wouldn’t you use the variety of layout classes rather than the base Panel?

Sorry for not replying before, but I’ve not worked on this project for some time as you can see…
Thanks, this was what I was looking for!
