Need to change color for --> ::GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNFACE)

Hi, I do have a line of code like this

pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, ::GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNFACE));

I need to change the GetSysColor(COLOR_BTNFACE) to &H00E7E7E6&

Is there any possible way to do so?

I am really newbiew to MFC. Sorry if this question is too stupid for you guys.

Please advice. Thanks in advance.

Are you thinking of

pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, RGB(E7,E7,E6));

Jaime OlivaresSoftware ArchitectCommented:
I guess it would be:
pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, RGB(0xE7,0xE7,0xE6));
Jaime OlivaresSoftware ArchitectCommented:
But I think you can use directly:
pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, 0x00E7E7E6);

Sorry jaime....jkr answer the question 1st.

RGB(E7,E7,E6) not equal to &H00E7E7E6&

RGB need to be in 0 - 255
the euqalvalant of &H00E7E7E6& is GRB ( 231, 231, 230)
Jaime OlivaresSoftware ArchitectCommented:
So, tell me:
Does pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, RGB(E7,E7,E6)) works anyway?
Is pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, 0x00E7E7E6) what you need?
cybehAuthor Commented:
Is that still possible to split the point 50% of the points to jaime? Seems like he gave the most accurate answer.
Jaime OlivaresSoftware ArchitectCommented:
Yes, you can, I will tell Community Support
No objections against a split :o)

What a pity a PE can't do that, so I would.
cybehAuthor Commented:
Actually both method works fine.

pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, GRB ( 231, 231, 230))
pDC->FillSolidRect(rcLeftGutter, 0x00E7E7E6)

Just that, the 2nd method might give more accurate color (I tried few color and sometimes, there are some mismatch if using the RGB method)
