The SmartPartPlaceholder background color is not transparent, which seems to be a problem when placed on a TabPage. The result is the user sees a "box" since the TabPage color is a gradient. Works the same when used in a TabControl or a TabWorkspace.

Thanks, I added this as a bug.

I also ran into this problem.

I have temporarily fixed it for us by re-implementing the SmartPartPlaceHolder, letting it inherit from Panel instead of Control, and otherwise not changed any code in it.

Solved our problem and has so far not created any new ones.
