Enabled Property (ElementControl)

FarPoint.Win Assembly > FarPoint.Win Namespace > ElementControl Class : Enabled Property
Gets or sets whether the control can receive focus and respond to user actions.
Public Overridable Shadows Property Enabled As Boolean
Dim instance As ElementControl
Dim value As Boolean
instance.Enabled = value
value = instance.Enabled
public virtual new bool Enabled {get; set;}

Property Value

Boolean value: true if element is enabled; false otherwise

If this property is set to true, you can still specify that the control cannot receive focus by setting the CanFocus property to false.

If the CanFocus property is set to true, you can move the focus to the control by calling the Focus method.

Contrast this property with the CanFocus property and the Selectable property. Use the CanFocus property to specify whether a control can receive the focus. Use the Selectable property to specify whether users can interact with the control, such as pressing a button.

control.Picture = Image.FromFile(Application.StartupPath + "\\smokes.bmp");
control.PictureMargin = 34;
control.MarginTop = 3;
control.MarginBottom = 3;
control.MarginLeft = 3;
control.MarginRight = 3;
control.PictureOrientation = FarPoint.Win.PictureOrientation.PictureRotate180;
control.AlignText = FarPoint.Win.TextAlign.TextLeftPictRight;
control.AlignHorz = FarPoint.Win.HorizontalAlignment.Left;
control.BackColor = Color.Red;
control.Text = "NO SMOKING";

// Turn off the No Smoking sign
