Is there a way to eliminate and/or recolor the drop shadow on a GradientLabel that is disabled? Depending on your color scheme & font selection(s), they can be come very hard to read.

Take a look; it''s gray text with a white drop shadow. Ultimately, I''d like to have control over both the disabled Forecolor as well as the drop shadow. If it helps, I have visual themes enabled. >Hi Ross, > >Would it be possible for you to send me a screenshot that reproduces the issue? > >Thanks for choosing our products. > >Regards, > >Anu. > > >

Here it is. Use a gradient background with "Active Caption" and "InactiveCaption" for the colors, "HighlightText" for the Forecolor, and a bold Verdana text. It''s really rought to read when disabled. Not I haven''t checked other combinations; just the one I plan to use. :) > >Hi Ross, > >Could you please send us your Font specifications?It would be appreciable if you can modify the attached sample and send it back to us for furthur investigation. > > >Sample > >Thanks for your interest in our products. > >Regards, > >Anu. > > >

Hi Ross, I am able to reproduce the issue with the sample here.We need to do some refreshments in Paint inorder to prevent the Forecolor of a disabled gradient label control from being grayed as you said. I am working on this and will try my best to include the fix for this in the next possible release.Meanwhile I will update you if i can come up with a workaround. Thanks for your patience. Best Regards, Anu.

Hey, great. Thanks for your help. It''s not a hugely pressing issue for us, so please spend your time fixing more important bugs instead of developing a workaround.

Hi Ross,

We have investigated this issue and this looks like the standard appearance in .Net Framework. GradientLabel is derived from System.Windows.Forms.Label,
and in design-time Label.Enabled property is set always to true. User could change it, but in design time it will have no effect.

By adding ControlStyles.UserPaint to true and by handling OnPaint there could be an option to highlight the disabled Text which can be added as a new support.However,I need to check with developer whether it is safe to code in such a way as we have other brushes used for Gradient and Pattern behaviour.

Thanks for your patience.

Best Regards,

Anu.

Hi Ross,


As a workaround for such a situation,internally we have added GradientLabel.DrawActiveWhenDisabled property which indicates whether the text should be drawn active or not.Changes for this will be included with the Essential Studio version coming after 4.4.

Thank you for your patience.

Best Regards,

Anu.
