Button no longer looks like a button...
Posted on 2000-03-16
I am trying to customise the background colour of the buttons on my Win32 dialog (e.g. 1 red and 1 yellow). I have been investigating WM_CTLCOLORBTN and it only works with owner drawn buttons.
I have a MESSAGE_HANDLER() for the WM_CTLCOLORBTN and it is called before every button is drawn and if it is an owner drawn button the button will change its background colour to the HBRUSH that the message returns.
The only problem is, when the dialog displays, the button just looks like a flat rectangle. It is no longer raised like a button and I have lost the text on the button face.
Can anyone help me with this.. I have searched the archives and can't figure out why this has happened.. Do I have to supply the button images myself?!?!?!
Thanks in advance..
