Hi,

I just noticed that the RadWatermarkTextBox's visual appearance doesn't seem to change when setting IsEnabled="False" and using the Metro theme. I am actually using a RadDateTimePicker which uses the RadWatermarkTextBox internally and thus I noticed this behavior.

I'm using version 2011.3.1116.1040 of the controls. Is this a known issue? Maybe fixed in the later releases?

Thanks!

Hi Adrian,

RadWatermarkTextBox is an auxiliary control meant for internal use. It is used in RadDateTimePicker control as you also noticed. In that case the RadDateTimePicker takes care of visual states and so RadWatermarkTextBox does not display a change other than a lighter foreground color when disabled.

Anyway, we will prepare appropriate states for the RadWatermarktextBox as recently there is a popular demand for its usage.

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi Dani,

Thanks for the answer. I don't see this "lighter foreground" when disabled though. The only thing that happens (again, on the metro theme), is that the selection indicator for the RadDateTimePicker becomes grayed, but the text (date) inside it has the same foreground, so it looks like it's still enabled.

Thanks!

Hello Adrian,

Thank you for your feedback.

Since we only recently decided to expose the RadWatermarkTextBox for common use based on customer feedback, there are still visual glitches that need fixing. We will be fixing issues with the RadWatermarktextBox themes in the nearest minor releases.

For the time being, you can edit your own copy of the RadWatermarkTextBoxStyle and apply any modifications you need on the visual states.

Hope this information helps.
