Hi,

I have several group boxes, and I want to fill the boxes with a light grey colour - can this be done?

When I try to set the colour, all it does is set the text colour.

What I'd like to do is set the area inside the group box to a colour, not the text.

Can it be done?

Thanks,
Andy.

You can do it by processing the WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC notification.

I had used this to to change the text and background color of a static. The same method should work with a groupbox.
