Changing the styles of the underlying items and controls

The following snippet shows how you access the underlying controls and change their style:

foreach (DataLayoutControlItem item in radDataLayout1.LayoutControl.Items)
    item.ForeColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#51ab2e");
    if (item.AssociatedControl is RadTextBox)
        item.AssociatedControl.BackColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#91c930");

For Each item As DataLayoutControlItem In RadDataLayout1.LayoutControl.Items
    item.ForeColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#51ab2e")
    If TypeOf item.AssociatedControl Is RadTextBox Then
        item.AssociatedControl.BackColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#91c930")
    End If
Next item
