Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean

false

true, if an image within the GroupControl's caption should be painted using the control's foreground color; otherwise, false.

Remarks

You can paint the GroupControl's caption image assigned to the GroupControl.CaptionImage property, using the GroupControl's caption foreground color (see the GroupControl.AppearanceCaption property). This feature is called Glyph Skinning, and allows you to create a monochrome UI for your application. You can refer to the Bar and Ribbon Glyph Skinning topic to see an example of monochrome UI implementation.

For best visual results, we recommend you use the gray-scaled images from the DevExpress Image Gallery as the GroupControl's caption image.

GroupControl is not the only control that supports the Glyph Skinning feature. See the Glyph Skinning topic for the complete control list.
