mwm frame color

How can I change the window frame color under mwm ? (not the background or foreground of the text - I need the color of the titlebar/resize handle, etc to change). I need to be able to configure this so that depending on the application running in the window, the frame color will be different. (Applies also to the iconized window)

Thanks!

Once a window has been created, I know of no way to change the frame colours if you are using plain old xterm. You can change the title text but that is it, AFAIK. There may be newer window types available in the public domain or even on the machine you are using. If there are, RTFM.

What about .Xresource options (i.e., source in an appropriate file prior to creating the window).  There has to be some parameter somewhere that controls frame color. I did browse the man pages, but the documentation stops short of explaining exactly what I need to do.  Thanks!

In your .Xdefaults file or .Xresource file, try the following:

Mwm*client*title*background: colour
