Public Overridable Property LinkColorUseParentAppearance As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true, if the link text color is specified by parent appearance settings; otherwise, false.


By default, the HyperLinkEdit's text is painted according to the RepositoryItemHyperLinkEdit.LinkColor property or the AppearanceObject.ForeColor property of the RepositoryItem.Appearance object. If these properties are not set, the default color is used.

A HyperLinkEdit can be embedded in a container control (GridControl, TreeList, etc.). In this case, you may want to paint text in an in-place HyperLinkEdit control using the appearance settings provided by the parent container control. To do this, set the LinkColorUseParentAppearance property to true. The RepositoryItemHyperLinkEdit.LinkColor and RepositoryItemHyperLinkEdit.Appearance.ForeColor properties will be ignored.
