Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to HighPriority
.Options .HighPriority


The appearance of a single element in a control can be specified using multiple appearance objects which have different priorities. The appearance settings of an object which has the lower priority are used to paint an element only if the appearance settings of the objects with the higher priority aren’t specified (their corresponding appearance options, e.g. UseBackColor, UseForeColor, are disabled).

The HighPriority property allows a higher priority to be specified for particular appearance settings ensuring they are always used. For more information on appearances and appearance options, see the Appearances document.
