    I am a bit confused here.  What I want to do is change the color of the text in the header of a group box.  Here's what I have figured out so far:




    RE As RadElement = DirectCast(Me.rgbPharmacyInformation.RootElement.Children(0).Children(1).
    The zeroth child of the root element is the RadGroupBoxElement.
    The First child of the RadGroupBoxElement is the GroupBoxHeader element.
    The second child of the GroupBoxHesder elelemnt is the ImageAndTextLayoutPanel element.
    The first child of the ImageAndTextLayoutPanel element is text. 

    Looking at the property inspector in VS2010, I see properties for this element and the property I would like to change is the Fioreground color.  But what do I cast the "text" element as (In the above code, the "text" can be successfully cast to a RadElement)?  How can I get to this property?   

    Anybody's assistance would be appreciated!  Thank you for your time!

    Hi Steven,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can change the color of the header text in RadGroupBox by modifying the ForeColor property of the Header element. Here is how you can access it:
    radGroupBox1.GroupBoxElement.Header.ForeColor = Color.Red;

    I hope the provided information addresses your question. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Can anyone explain why

    radGroupBox1.GroupBoxElement.Header.BackColor = Color.Green;

    ...does not have the intended effect of turning the group box's label background green?

    Hello, Dave,  

    Thank you for writing.  

    In order to change the back color for the header text in RadGroupBox, it is necessary to set the GroupBoxElement.Header.Fill.BackColor property: 
    radGroupBox1.GroupBoxElement.Header.Fill.BackColor = Color.Green;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
