What do I do to change the color of the text in my status bar? In particular, I want to make it appear red so it stands out a bit more than the default text. I'm running win3.x and VC++1.52.

For VC 1.52 you can derive your own class from CStatusBar and handle the DoPaint - copy the implementation of DoPaint from MFC source and change it so that it call SetTextColor with your required color rather than the default (which is button text color).For MFC 3 etc which use CStatusBarCtrl to implement a status bar rather than directly in MFC code, you need to specify an owner-drawn menu pane and draw the pane yourself (use DrawItem) - there is a knowledge-base article on this if/when you move to 32 bit windows.
