Style.ForeColor Property


Gets or sets the foreground color (typically the color of the text) of the Web server control.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

member ForeColor : Color with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color

A System.Drawing.Color that represents the foreground color of the control. The default is Color.Empty.

Use the ForeColor property to specify the foreground color of the Web server control. The foreground color is usually the color of the text. This property will render on browsers earlier than Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4 for all controls, except the Image, AdRotator, HyperLink and LinkButton.


On browsers that do not support styles, this property is rendered as a FONT element.

This example demonstrates how to use a Style object to change the style properties of multiple controls at once. Each time one of the Style property values changes, each control must call its ApplyStyle method. Note that not all the controls included support all the properties demonstrated. If a control does not support a particular property, the appearance of the control will not change when the property value is changed.
