Equations in static text boxes

I'm using VC++5. I have some static text boxes that I would like to put greek letters in or superscripts or subscripts. How do I do this?

I also would like to change background colors and colors of letters in test boxes and push buttons. Can I do this in the resource editor?

Thanks!

static text boxes can't do anything that fancy.  Your choice is to create your own control (possibly by subclassing the static text control) that does so, or use an RTF control.  An RTF control can do this sort of formatting, but you would have to disable it to make it act more like a static text control.

An RTF control allows you to specify the color of the characters in the control, so that should be no problem.

To handle the color of other controls, you need to handle the MW_CTLCOLORxxx messages (the xxx varies as there are different messages for different types of contols.)  You can handle the WM_CTLCOLORBTN message for a push button.  

Let me know if you have any questions.
