Hi

Is it possible to decide which font color that should be used in my disabled memo ? or is that something that windows decides and can't be changed

This is set in the Controls unit. I think it may be possible to override the function using an instance of TCustomMemo.

hi,
yes it is stoppped by windows but you can cheat ,

put a panel on the form
put the memo on top of the panel and set align to client

on some buttons do:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 panel1.Enabled := false;
 memo1.Font.Color := clred;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 memo1.Font.Color := clDefault;
 panel1.Enabled := True;
end;


works nicely :)
