public XRControlStyleSheet StyleSheet { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

An XRControlStyleSheet object, that represents the collection of XRControlStyle objects.


In addition to the appearance properties, which specify the appearance of a certain report control or a band, it is also possible to create and apply styles to them. A style contains the same set of appearance properties (e.g. BackColor, Font, ForeColor), some of which can be set and others not. All styles within a single report are stored in a report’s StyleSheet collection, and so this allows applying the same style to multiple report controls or bands.

Also, if a report’s style sheet is stored in an external file, it is possible to load it into the existing style sheet via the XRControlStyleSheet.LoadFromFile method, or provide its path via the XtraReport.StyleSheetPath property. Note that the styles loaded from the file specified by the StyleSheetPath property will file have a higher priority than the styles which exist in a report’s StyleSheet.

For more information on using this property, refer to the Report Visual Styles document.
