I have a dialog based app. And on that I have for instance a check box. Now say I want that checkbox text color to be blue. Is that possible. I tried something like:
CDC *pDC = m_Check1.GetDC();
pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(0,0,255));
UpdateData(FALSE);
Nothing happens. Since I'm new at MFC there are ofcourse error somewhere, could somneone help me out??
Thanx...

Create a WM_CTLCOLOR message handler (OnCtlColor) with ClassWizard, which is called for any child control to recieve a brush for painting the controls.

in the OnCtlColor function add something like this:

  int index = pWnd->GetDlgCtrlID();
  switch ( index )
  {
    case(IDC_CHECK1):
      pDC->SetTextColor( RGB( 255, 0, 0 ) );
      break;
    case(IDC_CHECK2):
      pDC->SetTextColor( RGB( 0, 255, 0 ) );
      break;
    }

to set the textcolor of the CheckBoc IDC_CHECK1 to red and the textcolor of IDC_CHECK2 to green.

hope that helps,
