CharacterPropertiesBase.ForeColor Property

Gets or sets the foreground color of characters.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v22.1.Core.dll


Color? ForeColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A Color value representing the foreground color, or null for a mixture of values.


Use the CharacterProperties interface to change character formatting.

If the CharacterPropertiesBase.ForeColor is not set explicitly, the RichEditControl.ForeColor property value is in effect. Modification of the RichEditControl.ForeColor applies changes to the CharacterPropertiesBase.ForeColor property of characters with an unspecified foreground color.


The semi-transparent alpha component (i.e. the Color’s alpha parameter set to value less than 255) is reset to opaque (255) during rendering and export.
