  • Last Updated : 02 Aug, 2019

In Windows Forms, GroupBox is a container which contains multiple controls in it and the controls are related to each other. Or in other words, GroupBox is a frame display around a group of controls with a suitable optional title. Or a GroupBox is used to categorize the related controls in a group. In GroupBox, you can set the font of the text present in the GroupBox in the form using Font Property. You can set this property in two different ways:

1. Design-Time: It is the easiest way to set the font of the GroupBox as shown in the following steps:

  • Step 1: Create a windows form as shown in the below image:
    Visual Studio -> File -> New -> Project -> WindowsFormApp
  • Step 2: Next, drag and drop the GroupBox control from the toolbox to the form as shown in the below image:

  • Step 3: After drag and drop you will go to the properties of the GroupBox and set the font of the GroupBox as shown in the below image:

    Output:

2. Run-Time: It is a little bit trickier than the above method. In this method, you can set the font of the GroupBox control programmatically with the help of given syntax:



public virtual System.Drawing.Font Font { get; set; }

Here, Font represents the font of the content present in the GroupBox. The following steps show how to set the font of the GroupBox dynamically:

  • Step 1: Create a GroupBox using the GroupBox() constructor is provided by the GroupBox class.
    // Creating a GroupBox
    GroupBox gbox = new GroupBox(); 
    
  • Step 2: After creating GroupBox, set the Font property of the GroupBox provided by the GroupBox class.
    // Setting the font
    gbox.Font = new Font("Colonna MT", 12);
    
  • Step 3: And last add this GroupBox control to the form and also add other controls on the GroupBox using the following statements:
    // Adding groupbox in the form
    this.Controls.Add(gbox);
    
    and 
    
    // Adding this control 
    // to the GroupBox
    gbox.Controls.Add(c2);
    

    Example:




    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
      
    namespace WindowsFormsApp46 {
      
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
      
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
      
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
      
            // Creating and setting 
            // properties of the GroupBox
            GroupBox gbox = new GroupBox();
            gbox.Location = new Point(179, 145);
            gbox.Text = "Select Gender";
            gbox.Name = "Mybox";
            gbox.Font = new Font("Colonna MT", 12);
            gbox.Visible = true;
            gbox.AutoSize = true;
            gbox.AutoSizeMode = AutoSizeMode.GrowAndShrink;
      
            // Adding groupbox in the form
            this.Controls.Add(gbox);
      
            // Creating and setting 
            // properties of the CheckBox
            CheckBox c1 = new CheckBox();
            c1.Location = new Point(40, 42);
            c1.Size = new Size(69, 20);
            c1.Text = "Male";
      
            // Adding this control 
            // to the GroupBox
            gbox.Controls.Add(c1);
      
            // Creating and setting 
            // properties of the CheckBox
            CheckBox c2 = new CheckBox();
            c2.Location = new Point(183, 39);
            c2.Size = new Size(79, 20);
            c2.Text = "Female";
      
            // Adding this control 
            // to the GroupBox
            gbox.Controls.Add(c2);
        }
    }
    }
