Hi, I have a custom control based on a canvas. When I place this control in a GroupBox, is there a way I can get it to automatically follow the enabled state of the GroupBox like say a CheckBox does?
Thanks in advance,
Inside your Canvas.Paint put
If Me.Parent <> Nil And Me.Parent.Enabled = False Then system.DebugLog("disabled paint") g.ForeColor = Color.DarkGray g.FillRect(0, 0, g.Width, g.Height) Else system.DebugLog("enabled paint") g.ForeColor = Color.Black g.FillRect(0, 0, g.Width, g.Height) End If
I hope that paint gets called on macos/linux as it does on windows when the parent is enabled/disabled, aka. tested working in windows ;)
Edit: Altered things so it works inside/outside of a container and defaults to enabled if not in one.
