: Hi there,
: I've written a dialog based program. I've changed the background color of the dialog itself and a few of the controls (using OnCtlColor). This works OK. Dialog looks fine, but when I add a menubar, this menu is still shown in grey (standard background color). I would like to change that.
Yes, you need to use owner draw menus. Petzold book has an example on that and I have some source code over here as well:
(copy/paste to your browser, do not click).
: Is it also possible to change the backgroundcolor of standard messageboxes?
Dont think so.
:The alternative is that I create the dialogs myself (as a resource).
That's the the way to go.
