FixedColor property not working

I have a TAdvStringGrid version with Delphi XE3.

The FixedColor property doesn't seem to do anything. It always seems to be set to clBtnFace, no matter what I set the Look property to. I can change the text color  with the FixedFont property.

Is this a bug, or do I need to set another property?

By default, the grid is configured to show gradient colors and gradient colors are set with grid.ControlLook.FixedGradientFrom,grid.ControlLook.FixedGradientTo.

If you want solid colors for fixed cells, set grid.Look = glSoft and then you can use grid.FixedColor to set the color.

This is also explained on the tips & FAQ page:
