Hello,


You can change the ForeColor of RadTextBox control by changing the ForeColor  of its subelements RadTextBoxItem and FillPrimitive:

Code:
radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.ForeColor = Color.Red;         
((FillPrimitive)this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.Children[1]).ForeColor = Color.Red;

And here is the form, which discusses similar scenario:
BackColor

Princy.

Hello ankit,

Thank you for writing.

You can change the font by assigning a Font variable to the Font property of RadTextBox. Consider the following code snippet:

public partial class Form1 : Form
{
   Font font;
 
   public Form1()
   {
      InitializeComponent();
 
      this.font = new Font("Arial", 14, FontStyle.Bold | FontStyle.Italic);
 
      this.radTextBox1.Font = this.font;
   }
}

Note that it is a good idea to have fonts created only once in your app, because the creation of a font is a heavy operation and can lead to memory leaks.

I hope this will help. If you have further questions, I would be happy to help.

 

Best wishes,
