    Hello WvR,

    Not for an individual window.  The title bar colour is controlled by Windows settings.  You can change the colours in code but they will affect all windows.

    Peter is right - you can only change the colour through the API as the title properties is windows based.

    You can change the application title and apply your own icon (*.ico file) to the db though. Have a look through the Tools, Start UP window.
