Property Value

Type Description
Color

The border color of the editor in unfocused state.

Remarks

The text editor supports two types of the box (the BoxMode property):

  • Outlined - the border is displayed around the entire editor box, corners are rounded.
  • Filled - the border is displayed only for the bottom edge of the editor box, the box background is filled with the default color, top corners are rounded.

You can configure the following appearance settings for each type of the editor box:

Outlined:

Filled:

DisabledBackgroundColor = PeachPuff

Corners

You can adjust edit box corners - all corners of an Outlined text editor, and top corners of a Filled editor (bottom corners are always square). Use the CornerRadius property to change the radius of editor corners:

  • Pass a single double value to the CornerRadius structure to set the same radius for all editor corners:

    <dxe:TextEdit x:Name = "textEdit" CornerRadius = "15"/>
    

  • Pass four double values (TopLeft, TopRight, BottomLeft and BottomRight, in this order) to specify each corner radius separately:

    <dxe:TextEdit x:Name = "textEdit" CornerRadius = "20,0,0,0"/>
    

The CornerMode property specifies whether the editor corners are cut or rounded. In cut corner mode, the parameters above affect corner bevel size.

CornerRadius = 15
CornerMode = Round

CornerRadius = 15
