Font color in RadioGroupBox
« on: July 18, 2019, 11:32:13 pm »
When I try to change the color of the font in a RadioGroupBox, the font color does not change.  Is this a feature or a bug?  All the radiobuttons plus the title should be affected.

I am able to underline text and change fonts in that box, but not the font color.

A known restriction of some widgetsets.

To see other restrictions you could look at the Restriction Browser ("View" > "Restriction Browser") where you can filter for the control and the widget set (indicated by the characteristic icons). (There is also a page "Restricted" in the Object Inspector, but I must confess that I never understood it.)

I just tested in Linux. Setting the color to clMaroon at design time worked both in the IDE and at run-time (which doesn' happen with e.g. TCheckGroup).

Then I added this line to the form's OnCreate handler (rgOptions is the radio group):
Code: [Select]
  rgOptions.Font.Color := clNavy;and it worked also, as can be seen in the attached image.

Couldn't test on Windows, so YMMV.
