How can i override/change just the font color of disabled textboxes. I am using radformdecorator and windows7 skin? I find the current font color too light. Thanks.

Hi Arnold Castro,

You can use the .rfdTextbox input[type="text"][disabled] css class selector, e.g.
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <style type="text/css">
        .rfdTextbox input[type="text"][disabled]
        {
            color: red;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All"
        Skin="Windows7" />
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Enabled="false">Some Text</asp:TextBox>
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server">Some Text</asp:TextBox>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Hi Arnold,

You can't style disabled elements under some browsers. The following quote is from W3C:
"How disabled elements are rendered depends on the user agent. For example, some user agents "gray out" disabled menu items, button labels, etc."
Let us know if you have any other questions.
