change button's background color

Well, the title says it all.
I'm using this code, but it doesn't seem to work.

 btColorFondo.Brush.Style := bsSolid;
 btColorFondo.Brush.Color := clRed;

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you cannot do this with TButton etc, since the windows pushbutton control always paints itself with the button color defined in control panel. But you can use an owner-drawn button and take over painting yourself.
In fact there should be dozens of "TColorButton" etc. around already, search the usual Delphi sites.
