    Customizing the Outline of the Component
    In This Topic

    You can set several aspects of the outline (or border) of the component. These aspects include:

    Here is a picture of an example of the outline of the component changed to be a thick dashed green outline. The example below shows the code for these customizations.

    Example of Customized Control Outline

    Using the Properties Window

    Set the border at design time with the Properties window of Visual Studio .NET.

    1. Select the component.
    2. With the Properties window open, in the Appearance category, select the BorderColor property, the BorderStyle property, or the BorderWidth property. For the BorderColor and BorderStyle properties, select a value from the drop-down list. For the BorderWidth, type in a value; the unit is pixels. Press Enter. The new property is now set.

      Refer to the Microsoft .NET Framework documentation for setting the units to something other than the default, which is pixels.

    Using Code

    Add a line of code that sets the specific border property. The default for the unit of thickness is pixels. For more information, refer to the BorderColor, BorderStyle, and BorderWidth properties in the Border class.


    This example shows how to create a green dashed outline that is four pixels thick around the entire component. To see the results, see the figure above.

    Copy Code
    FpSpread1.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.Green;
    FpSpread1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Dashed;
    FpSpread1.BorderWidth = System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit.Pixel(4); 
    Copy Code
    FpSpread1.BorderColor = Drawing.Color.Green
    FpSpread1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Dashed
    FpSpread1.BorderWidth = System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit.Pixel(4)
