I cannot seem to figure out how to set the text color of a Group box.
setForground seems to do nothing.

Any ideas?

Hi Ken,

Group.setForeground() is the correct way to do this, but some platforms
don't support changing a Group's label foreground, which is likely what
you're seeing.

The only real workaround for this is to create an ON_TOP Shell at the
position of the Group's label and put some other control in it that can show
coloured text. This is probably more work than it's worth though, unless
colouring the Group labels is particularly important in your app. Or
alternatively you could create the Group with no label and just move its
text to a new Label widget within the Group which could be coloured.
