public virtual Color BorderColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A Color object that represents the border color.


The BorderColor property specifies the color of the control’s borders, while the control’s visible borders are specified by the XRControl.Borders property, and their width is specified by the XRControl.BorderWidth property.

If the BorderColor property’s value is not set for the current report control, its value is obtained from its parent, or a parent of its parent and so on. Similarly, the BorderColor value of the current control is applied to all its child report controls (if there are any in its XRControl.Controls collection), if their BorderColor property value is not set. For more information on this concept, please refer to Appearance Properties.


The BorderColor property is not used by all descendants of the XRControl class. For example, the XRPageBreak class ignores the BorderColor property.
