Group Box Outline In VB.NET Barely Visible

Hi

The outline of the GroupBox in Vb.NET is barely visible. This makes it extremely difficult to work with. I have looked at the properties available to the GroupBox but cannot find anything that improves the visibilty of the control. I am not sure if this may be a Windows setting. Has anybody complained about it before ?. I am using Visual Studio 2008.

Thanks

hi @Nolanc
Two ways...either change your forms back color to a more darkness color or there is a link for that ....

Generally there is no direct method of changing the GroupBox's Border Or Color and there is not a restriction of making your own custom GroupBox control (like the link above) or this one
