Label Font Color

I want to set my label's font color. I tried the below code (and I tried other things that didn't work too).

lblMessage.font.color=red

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi, at runtime, use: lblMessage.ForeColor=Color.Red
Good luck

Oh, I actually had a solution in a different question of mine.

      lblMessage.cssclass="someclass"


But, I'm still curious why I can't make it work the other way.

You could do this:

lblStatus.ForeColor = "red";

That will make your font red.

Hi,
I thought you have imported the System.Drawing,
You may use it in this way:
lblMessage.ForeColor=System.Drawing.Color.Red

Or you may add this line to the first line of the module:
Imports System.Drawing

And then write this code:
lblMessage.ForeColor=Color.Red

Good luck
