Applies To

TcxEditStyle, TPanel


Use the Color property to get or set the background color of the component. Note that the Color property can be ignored and the group boxes and panels may become transparent. This happens if the following conditions are met:

  • You use Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP.
  • You use any Windows theme other than Windows Classic.

Note that if the control’s ParentColor property is True, it will use the same background color as its parent.

Property Value

An integer value that specifies the components’ background color.

For a list of predefined color constants and instructions on how to calculate custom color values, see the Working With Colors topic.


For the TcxGroupBox component, the Color property is available at run time only, that is, only from the script code.

When you change the Color property value, the ParentColor property is automatically set to False. To make the component use the same background color as its parent, set ParentColor to True.
