DisabledForeColor does not work

Post by baron »

It seems DisabledBackColor works but not DisabledForeColor for quite some time now?

I tried both at runtime and during design of the control... It's on windows 7 but I don't think that's important.

Hi,

The help file states that
On current versions of Windows this property has no effect if the control is disabled.
So currently it works for read-only controls only. I did choose the somewhat misleading name to follow existing naming conventions and because I hoped to make it work for disabled controls as well someday later. But seems like this will never happen, and now I cannot change the name anymore without breaking compatibility.
