Every MUI object has its own background setting. The background is displayed "behind" the actual object contents, e.g. behind a the text of a text object or behind the image of an image object.
An object without a specific background setting will inherit the pattern from its parent group. The default background for a window and many other background patterns are adjustable with the preferences program.
The following background settings are possible:
All backgrounds with "pre" are MUI's predefined patterns. These are not configurable by the user and will always look the same.
Note: It is *important* that you test your programs with a fancy pattern configuration. With the default setting you won't notice any errors in your backgrounds.
