Asked On June 6, 2009 02:06 AM UTC

I am building an app which supports the 3 office themes and have an issue with the themed controls when they are hosted inside of a panel.

When I set the panel ForeColor, the themed control's fore color changes and cannot be reset to the themed colors. This is especially problematic with the black theme and the selected back and fore colors.

Also, for the Navigation View, the fore color is always Black. It does not seem to be using the theme colors. For the Black theme, this is problematic because you can barely see the text. If I change the forecolor to white, then when teh bars are selected, it shows orange on white which is hard to read.

Is there a way to get the Navigation View to work well with the Black Theme??

Thanks

Decided to abandon the navigation view altogether. Too much work to make it fit the theme of the application.

I decided to use a combo drop down with tree view instead.

Thanks for the response though!
