Re:change the border color of a groupbox


If you set Ctl3D false, it will be black.

Try this:

(*
TEXSColoredGroupBox - Eddie Shipman

 TGroupBox that allows colored and flat colored bevels.

 Added three properties:
*******************************************************************************
 property: - BevelShadowColor-
    This is the color of the Bevel's Shadow, Default clBtnShadow.
    Change this color to change the color of the Bevel's Shadow.

*******************************************************************************
 property:  BevelHighlightColor-

    This is the color of the Bevel's Highlight, Default clBtnHighlight.
    Change this color to change the color of the Bevel's Highlight.

*******************************************************************************
 property:  BevelWidth-

    This is the width of the Bevel.

*******************************************************************************
  This component will also draw the frame in "flat mode" if Ctl3D is False
  using the BevelShadowColor.

  It still has some problems with redrawing controls in design-time but it is
  usable...
