Hi
derive UR own class from CSliderControl say CMySlider
make UR slider control variable as CMySlider
map       ON_WM_CTLCOLOR_REFLECT() ie =WM_CTLCOLOR and in the function return the desired color brush
HBRUSH CMySlider::CtlColor(CDC* pDC, UINT nCtlColor)
{
      
      HBRUSH hbr;
      pDC->SelectStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH);
      hbr = (HBRUSH)::GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH);
      return hbr;
}
Hope this helps

I actually didn't need to derive my own class..  I just used OnCtlColor for my form and returned different brushes for the control drawing.
