Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, and DefaultForeColor members. To run the example, paste the following code in a form containing a ListBox called ListBox1. Call the Populate_ListBox method in the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.

// The following method displays the default font, 
// background color and foreground color values for the ListBox  
// control. The values are displayed in the ListBox, itself.
void Populate_ListBox()
{
   ListBox1->Dock = DockStyle::Bottom;
   
   // Display the values in the read-only properties 
   // DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, DefaultForecolor.
   ListBox1->Items->Add( String::Format( "Default BackColor: {0}", ListBox::DefaultBackColor ) );
   ListBox1->Items->Add( String::Format( "Default Font: {0}", ListBox::DefaultFont ) );
   ListBox1->Items->Add( String::Format( "Default ForeColor:{0}", ListBox::DefaultForeColor ) );
}

// The following method displays the default font, 
// background color and foreground color values for the ListBox  
// control. The values are displayed in the ListBox, itself.

private void Populate_ListBox()
{
	ListBox1.Dock = DockStyle.Bottom;

	// Display the values in the read-only properties 
	// DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, DefaultForecolor.
	ListBox1.Items.Add("Default BackColor: " + 
		ListBox.DefaultBackColor.ToString());
	ListBox1.Items.Add("Default Font: " + 
		ListBox.DefaultFont.ToString());
	ListBox1.Items.Add("Default ForeColor:" + 
		ListBox.DefaultForeColor.ToString());

}

' The following method displays the default font, 
' background color and foreground color values for the ListBox  
' control. The values are displayed in the ListBox, itself.

Private Sub Populate_ListBox()
    ListBox1.Dock = DockStyle.Bottom

    ' Display the values in the read-only properties 
    ' DefaultBackColor, DefaultFont, DefaultForecolor.
    ListBox1.Items.Add("Default BackColor: " & ListBox.DefaultBackColor.ToString)
    ListBox1.Items.Add("Default Font: " & ListBox.DefaultFont.ToString)
    ListBox1.Items.Add("Default ForeColor:" & ListBox.DefaultForeColor.ToString)

End Sub

Remarks

This is the default ForeColor property value of a nonparented control. Derived classes can have different defaults.
