    I may have overlooked this but I cannot find a way to detect forground color of text. ANyone care to point me in the correct direction?

    My problem in more detail.

    I am using a coded test with the telerik framework. I am at a spot to where I have the test quering data from a db, looping through the items and verifying that they are contained within a specified combobox and everything is running great. A new development task was made to change the text color depending on a variable so I will now need to not only do a check on if the items exists but also the foreground color of the textblock. Any ideas?

    Hello Travis Acton,

    Using the Developer Edition you can craft and record a verification step that verifies the computed color matches a particular value. Follow these steps:

    1. Navigate to the page containing the text you want to verify the color of.
    2. Turn on highlighting.
    3. Hover over the text to be verified and wait for the blue nub to appear.
    4. Click on the blue nub to open the Element Menu.
    5. Click the Build Verification button. The Sentence Verification Builder will open.
    6. Create a verification like the one shown in the verifycolor.png screenshot. This screenshot is for verifying the foreground color is Blue. Your color will probably be different.
    7. Click OK to save the verification as a step to your test.

    Now you also mention about using a coded test. If you convert this verification step to code it will come out something like this:

    [CodedStep(@"Verify 'ColorAndBackground:Color' style 'Exact' '#0000FF' on 'Text2Span'")]
    public void IpsumLoremDolor_CodedStep()
        //Verify 'ColorAndBackground:Color' style 'Exact' '#0000FF' on 'Text2Span'
        Pages.LoremIpsumDolorSitAmet.Text2Span.AssertStyle().ColorAndBackground(ArtOfTest.WebAii.Controls.HtmlControls.HtmlAsserts.HtmlStyleColorAndBackground.Color, "#0000FF", ArtOfTest.WebAii.Controls.HtmlControls.HtmlAsserts.HtmlStyleType.Computed, ArtOfTest.Common.StringCompareType.Exact);
