Hi,

I am new to radControls so this will most likely be something simple.

I have a textbox which I would like to change the backcolour but when I change the backcolour in the properties, nothing changes.

What am I missing?

Thanks

I found the solution :-)

((RadTextBoxItem)radTextBox1.RootElement.Children[0].Children[0]).BackColor = SystemColors.Control;

Hi Jay,

The easiest way to change the BackColor is as follows

this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.BackColor = SystemColors.Control;

Hope that helps

Hello guys,

Richard, setting the color of the TextBoxElement will indeed do the job. However, if Jay wants to place this code line in the constructor of the Form which contains the textbox, the better solution is to actually set the BackColor of the TextBoxItem:
this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.BackColor = SystemColors.Control;

Jay, in addition to the code line given above, it will be nice to set the BackColor of the Fill as well. This will allow you to achieve a consistent look:
this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.Fill.BackColor = SystemColors.Control;

I hope this helps.

Thank you for correcting me about this Nikolay. That makes sense.
