TCustomEdit.ParentColor

Uses the Color from the Parent control, when enabled.

Declaration

Source position: stdctrls.pp line 840

protected property TCustomEdit.ParentColor : Boolean
  default False;

Description

ParentColor determines if the control should use the Color from the Parent control, when enabled. The default value is False in TCustomEdit.

When this property is True, all changes to the Color of the parent will also be applied to the Color of the control, ensuring that they both contain same value. If the Color of the control is changed by the application, then ParentColor will be automatically set to False.

Using ParentColor when the Color value is clDefault can cause problems in resolving the actual color value. To obtain the Color property of a control while taking into account clDefault and ParentColor, use the GetColorResolvingParent method. This method might return a non-RGB color, but will never return clDefault. To obtain a purely RGB result use the GetRGBColorResolvingParent method.
