Thanks.

I wanted to change the background color of progress control.
In dialog, I overrided WM_CTLCOLOR.
The class wizard created a function called as OnCtlColor().
Below is my code.

HBRUSH CMyDialog::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlcolor)
{
     if (m_progress.GetSafeHwnd() == pWnd->GetSafeHwnd())
          return m_brush;                    // for example, red brush

     HBRUSH hbr = CDialog::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);
     return hbr;
}

My progress control still has gray background.

***********

I have another question.
How can I remove or erase the "border" of  progress control?
The style of "border" is WM_EX_STATICEDGE.
I create new class. Base class is CProgressCtrl.
I overrided WM_PAINT message.
But, I can't erase the "border".

Best regards...
Thanks again. Good lucks!

I had to change the background color of one of my CStatic controls, IDC_STATIC_STUDENT_NAME, in a CFormView...  Maybe what I did will help you with your code.  Maybe not.  Good luck!

HBRUSH CEvaluatorView::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
{
  HBRUSH hbr = CFormView::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);
      
  // TODO: Change any attributes of the DC here
  if (nCtlColor == CTLCOLOR_STATIC &&
      pWnd->GetDlgCtrlID() == IDC_STATIC_STUDENT_NAME)
  {
            
     pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(255, 255, 255));
     pDC->SetBkColor(GetSysColor(COLOR_INACTIVECAPTION));

     return m_brush;
  }
      
  // TODO: Return a different brush if the default is not desired

  return hbr;
}

Try process WM_ERASEBKGND. See VC++ help for Cwnd::OnEraseBkgnd
