Changing disabled text color
Posted on 2004-10-18
There is this very big old VB application that I've been asked to convert to XP and there is a lot in there. In it, they put gray color in the Backcolor for all disabled objects like textbox and combobox so now with XP new color scheme, the text in it is no more readable.
I want the text to stay black even if disabled (since the backcolor is grayed when disabled), BUT I don't want to use the LOCKED solution because there is to much to change and it use a lot of Frame.enable = false, so I can't imagine to change all items status to lock in those frame.
Even if it's not possible to change the disabled text value from VB's IDE point of view, maybe there is some tricky code that will set the color to black only for this application ?
I guess I ask for miracles ...
