changing Control colours
Posted on 2000-04-05
This question has 2 parts :-
(1)I'm writing a GUI where I set the BackColor property of a text-box to yellow when it gets focus & back to white again when it loses it. This works fine except for when you start typing text in the box which comes out black with a grey back-ground around the text - it's the grey background I'm trying to get rid of; any ideas please?
(2)Similarly, when a check-box or radio-button gets focus, I would like to set only the little square box where the tick goes to be yellow when it gains focus, but setting the BackColor property in this case colours every part of the control EXCEPT the little square box. Any ideas for this too?
