Property Value

The default foreground Color of the control. The default is SystemColors.ControlText.

This is the default ForeColor property value of a nonparented control. Derived classes can have different defaults.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, and DefaultForeColor members. To run the example, paste the following code in a form containing a ListBox called ListBox1. Call the Populate_ListBox method in the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.


// The following method displays the default font, 
// background color and foreground color values for the ListBox  
// control. The values are displayed in the ListBox, itself.

private void Populate_ListBox()
{
    ListBox1.Dock = DockStyle.Bottom;

    // Display the values in the read-only properties 
    // DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, DefaultForecolor.
    ListBox1.Items.Add("Default BackColor: " + 
        ListBox.DefaultBackColor.ToString());
    ListBox1.Items.Add("Default Font: " + 
        ListBox.DefaultFont.ToString());
    ListBox1.Items.Add("Default ForeColor:" + 
        ListBox.DefaultForeColor.ToString());

}

// The following method displays the default font, 
// background color and foreground color values for the ListBox  
// control. The values are displayed in the ListBox, itself.
private void Populate_ListBox()
{
    listBox1.set_Dock(DockStyle.Bottom);
    // Display the values in the read-only properties 
    // DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, DefaultForecolor.
    listBox1.get_Items().Add("Default BackColor: " 
        + ListBox.get_DefaultBackColor().ToString());
    listBox1.get_Items().Add("Default Font: " 
        + ListBox.get_DefaultFont().ToString());
    listBox1.get_Items().Add("Default ForeColor:" 
        + ListBox.get_DefaultForeColor().ToString());
} //Populate_ListBox
