    Remarks

    The Style class encapsulates the properties that control the appearance of a control and can be applied to multiple controls to provide a common appearance.

    Style properties can be cascaded using inheritance.  When creating a new style you can set the values of unset properties to inherit from a parent style.  For example, if you have a style named "Normal", you can create a new style named "NormalBold" and set only the Parent property to "Normal" and the FontBold property to true. The remaining properties will be set the same as the parent style.

    ActiveReports has a set of built-in styles that are defined in the StyleSheet class.

    Example
    Paste inside the ReportStart event.
    private void rptGrapeCity_ReportStart(object sender, System.EventArgs eArgs)
    {
        this.StyleSheet.Add("MyStyle");
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].Alignment = TextAlignment.Center;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.White;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].FontBold = true;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].FontItalic = false;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].FontName = "Arial";
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].FontSize = 10.5;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].FontStrikeThrough = false;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].FontUnderline = false;
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.YellowGreen;
        Console.WriteLine(this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].Name.ToString());
        Console.WriteLine(this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].Value.ToString());
        this.StyleSheet["MyStyle"].VerticalAlignment = VerticalTextAlignment.Middle;
    
        Label1.ClassName = "MyStyle";
    
        if (this.StyleSheet.Count > 10)
        {
            this.StyleSheet.Remove("MyStyle");
        }
    }
    Paste inside the ReportStart event.
    Private Sub SectionReport1_ReportStart(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.ReportStart
       Me.StyleSheet.Add("MyStyle")
       Me.StyleSheet("MyStyle").Alignment = TextAlignment.Center

       Me.StyleSheet("MyStyle").FontSize = 10.5
       Me.StyleSheet("MyStyle").FontStrikeThrough = False
       Me.StyleSheet("MyStyle").FontUnderline = False
       Me.StyleSheet("MyStyle").ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.YellowGreen
