I have a rich edit control on my dialog and I want its background color to match the background of the dialog instead of the default white.  How can I query the dialog background color OnInitDialog in order to have a COLORREF to pass to a call to m_edMyRichEditCtrl.SetBackgroundColor(FALSE, COLORREF)?
