Combo box text colour

Hi all,


I have a combobox field, once an item is selected and the drop down is hidden, I want the remaining text to be a different colour.


What setting needs to be changed to achieve this?

Re: Combo box text colour

Hi @opticshrew2 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want to change the remaining Items Text within your ComboBox to a different color?


Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the Color property and SelectionColor property of the ComboBox could achieve your needs.


The Color property of the ComboBox is used to render all ComboBox Items Text color. The SelectionColor property of the ComboBox is used to render the selected Item Text color. Please check the following screenshot for more details:7.JPG

Set the SelectionColor property of the ComboBox to following:

RGBA(255, 255, 255, 1)

set the Color proeprty of the Combobox to following:

RGBA(246, 88, 16, 1)

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.


Best regards,

Re: Combo box text colour



**I would add images but for some reason I can't**


I have a combo box where when the drop down component is hidden, the remaining text should be coloured. It appears if I set the DisplayMode (View) of the control, the colour can be changed however I can't interact.


This will work for now, however ideally when the DisplayMode is Edit the text is still black.
