Version Added: Access 2010

expression .ForeShade

expression A variable that represents a TextBox object.

The ForeShade property contains a numeric expression that can be used to darken the theme color in the BackColor property. The default value of the ForeShade property is 100, which is neutral, and does not change the theme color. To darken the color you first determine the percentage by which to darken from 1 to 100, then subtract that value as a whole number from 100 and use the remainder. For example, to darken the theme color by 75%, you subtract 75 from 100 and use the remainder, which is 25.

This property is not surfaced in the property sheet.

The following code darkens ForeColor by 75%.
