How do I change the background color in a view? I overrode the OnPrepareDC function, and tried to do a
SetBKColor((255,0,0));   but it did not work.  However, it did place a black square on wherever the text should have been?

On a similar note, how do I change the textcolor?

Thanks in Advancew

Try to ovveride the WM_ERASEBKGND message.

The function that will be called should look somthing like this:
(This example changes the BG to green)

BOOL CMyView::OnEraseBkgnd(CDC* pDC)
{
  CBrush Br(RGB(0x00,0xFF,0x00)); // green brush
  CRect rcBounds;
  pDC->GetClipBox(&rcBounds);
 
  CBrush* pOldBrush = pDC->SelectObject(&Br);
  pDC->PatBlt(rcBounds.left, rcBounds.top, rcBounds.Width(), rcBounds.Height(),PATCOPY);
  pDC->SelectObject(pOldBrush);
 
  return TRUE; // this means that we changed the BG
}


Have fun,
Moti.
