Hi there,

I am new to Visual Basic, but I am developing a windows form app .NET and I have a problem.

I insert a textbox, label or button in the form and change the text and forecolor, and it displays the color that I chose.

Then when I run the program (press the start icon at the top) the forecolor (the font color) is just black...
What am I doing wrong here?

Please help!

Thanks

    Hi
    You need to say how you 'change the text and forecolor'. Is that done in the Designer by changing the Forecolor property?
    Do you have any code in the Form1_Load Event Handler, or the Form1_Shown Event Handler?

    Thank you for your answer, LesHay-2099, but I managed to solve the issue :)

    It turns out that I had a panel with the enable-property set to FALSE, underneath the labels and textboxes.
