I can't find out how to change the color on the menu bar on my form. I would also like to change the color of the buttons, but when I change the property 'back color' nothing happens, It works on other controls. What do I do wrong?

* Changing color for menubar is only possible using API calls (unfortunately can't look up the functions here and now)
* For Buttons, but you may change the type to "Graphical" instead of Standard

Before you change the backcolor of a button you need to change the STYLE property to GRAPHICAL.

To change menu colors, see the following microsoft KB article:
