You could try this. It should work in most modern browsers. For IE, probably only version 9 or above.

input.textEntry:disabled
{
    color:#eee
}

input.passwordEntry:disabled
{
    color:#eee
}

Didn't know you can address enabled and disabled properties of an input via CSS, Cool...

You could also switch CssClass or set the properties of the textbox programmatically, but CSS solution would be much cleaner.
 Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Me.TextBox1.Enabled = False Then
            Me.TextBox1.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.White
            'Me.TextBox1.CssClass = "disabled"
        Else
            Me.TextBox1.ForeColor = Drawing.Color.Black
            'Me.TextBox1.CssClass = "enabled"
        End If
 End Sub

Open in new window

instead make it Readonly

<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text = "XXXXX" ForeColor = "Red" ReadOnly = "true" ></asp:TextBox>

Then whatever color you've set in ForeColor property will apply. Or I think you can use CSS also if it is readonly and not disabled.
