Hi,

I'm trying to change the border color on a RadTextBox.
It should be easy using the control, but in my case the radtextbox is stored in a var.
Here a sample

 

Dim controle As String = CType(sender, RadTextBox).Name
 ' Change the text : It works !
Controls(controle).Text = "Hello, World"
 ' Change the border = DON'T WORK
DirectCast(Me.Controls(controle).TextBoxElement.Children(2), Telerik.WinControls.Primitives.BorderPrimitive).ForeColor = Color.Red

 


So I can change the text, but I have a problem with this line (.textBoxElement) not present :

DirectCast

 

 

Me.controls(controle).TextBoxElement.Children(2), Telerik.WinControls.Primitives.BorderPrimitive).ForeColor = Color.Red

Thanks for your help

Hi Mr Filleau,

Thank you for writing.

I assume that you want to change the text box border color in some event handler, where the sender is RadTextBox control. If so, please consider the following code snippet:
DirectCast(sender, RadTextBox).TextBoxElement.Border.ForeColor = Color.Red

I hope this helps. 

Let us know if you have any other questions.
