Under the Windows XP setting, can you control group box caption color?

Well, there is no direct way to change that.
You have two options:
1.
Clear the TGroupBox caption and place a TLabel and set its properties.

2.
Drive your own component and add extra property to the component:

Set "Enable:=False" for all controls in your group Box

Set "GroupBox1.Font.Color:=clGrey" to change caption font color to grey

This works with Delphi 2007!!!

You can disable all controls inside your groupbox as follows:

for i:=0 to GroupBox1.ControlCount-1 do
  GroupBox1.Controls[i].enabled:=false;

Open in new window
