Hello community!!!

I am trying to get the "ForeColor" value of a "RadButton" but when it is in "MouseOver" state. Any idea how can I do that?
As you can see in my screenshot, into "Visual Style Builder" I found the "HighlightedForeColor" key for the "MouseOver" state but I don't know how to get this value into my code like I do to the example below for this "RadButton".
        public static Color RGB_Color()
        {
            RadButton Rad_Button = new RadButton();

            RadForm Rad_Form = new RadForm();
            Rad_Form.Controls.Add(Rad_Button);
            Rad_Form.ThemeName = "Office2019Dark";

            Color forecolor = new Color();
            forecolor = Rad_Button.ForeColor;

            Debug.WriteLine("The forecolor is : " + forecolor);
            return forecolor;
        }
Thank you for your time!!!

Hello, Simos,  

Please have in mind that the different themes that are available with the Telerik UI for WinForms suite provide different design achieved by applying different style settings. Hence, if one repository for a specific element state has name X, it is not mean that the same repository will be available in another theme. 

However, in case you are using a specific theme in your application and you are absolutely sure about the repository name, it is possible to extract the color programmatically at run time. The following KB article demonstrates a sample approach:
https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/knowledge-base/modify-themes-programmatically 

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
