As well as setting the style and colour of the border (and shadow), 
you need to select something under "Line arrangement" to indicate on 
which sides you want the border to appear.  You can pick something 
under Default - you may want the second icon from the left, 
indicating all four sides - or make your own selection in the picture 
panel below.  If you don't make this selection, you get the left icon 
by default, which is nothing!

That's because you (so far) asked for no border, so the style 
selection is forgotten.

I trust this helps.
