You can customize the border appearance of the TextBoxExt by using the following properties.

  • BorderStyle.
  • Border3DStyle.
  • BorderSides.
  • BorderColor.



This property specifies the border style of the TextBoxExt. The default value of the BorderStyle is BorderStyle.Fixed3D. The border style is categorized as:               

  1. None.
  2. FixedSingle.
  3. Fixed3D.



This property sets the 3D border style for the TextBoxExt, and this can be used when the BorderStyle is specified as Fixed3D. The Border3DStyles are categorized as:

  1. RaisedInner.
  2. RaisedOuter.
  3. SunkenInner.
  4. SunkenOuter.
  5. Raised.
  6. Etched.
  7. Bump.
  8. Sunken.
  9. Adjust.
  10. Flat.



This property specifies the border sides of the control, and this can be used when the BorderStyle is specified as Fixed3D. BorderSides are:

  1. All.
  2. Top.
  3. Bottom.
  4. Left.
  5. Right.
  6. Middle.



This property sets the single line bordercolor of the TextBoxExt, and can be used when the BorderStyle is specified as FixedSingle.
