Hello, when I set my textbox to read only, it becomes transparent in colour, what i mean by this is that instead of the wite background, it turns grey (same colour as my form).

The textbox(es) are surrounded by a group box, but i dont think that that is effecting it...?

What is happening?  i want to have the textboxes white, not grey?

Thanks

Why not use a Label its a read only textbox and you dont have to set any properties and you can set the Border to look like a textbox
