I'm using the MS TreeView control in an Access database. I'd like to be able to set the background color to something other than white.  The treeview object doesn't seem to support the Backcolor property.  Is there another way?

PinnaclePr,

  Take a look at this page:
http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/code/comctl/tveffects.htm

  Basically you could set treeview background color by sending message TVM_SETBKCOLOR to treeview Control (TVM_SETBKCOLOR=&H1129).

  The above link work well in VB. I didn't test in Access but I think it work as well.

  Regards.
