Hi!
I have a CEdit member in my cdialog.
The style of this CEdit is : MULTILINE and READ_ONLY.

But when i use this i get a gray background of the CEdit control, although the background that i want is WHITE.

Do you have a solution for me??

Hi,

Open the class wizard and add a new class say CMyEdit derived form CEdit. Then have a control variable of type CMyEdit associated with that edit box using class wizard -> member variables tab -> Add Variable. Map the =WM_CTLCOLOR message to CMyEdit class using class wizard and modify it as

HBRUSH CMyEdit::CtlColor(CDC* pDC, UINT nCtlColor)
{
     HBRUSH hbr;
     
     //Set the text attributes
     pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(0, 0, 0));
     pDC->SetBkColor(RGB(255, 255, 255));

     //Set the edit bk color
     hbr = ::CreateSolidBrush(RGB(255, 255, 255));
     return hbr;    
}

That should give u the required.

Try it out.

Okay...

Possibly with read only set, u wont get that message in dialog for that edit control. U need the reflection message mapping. For that u need to have a subclassed edit control and map that message. Anyway, just give it a try. Otherwise it is always better to subclass it as u may want to add some more specific functionalities for that edit control... in that case it will help and is easy.
