Hi, I've had a look at the code. You have to set

MyXPMenu.UseSystemColors:=False;

then you can change all the colors, e.g:

MyXPMenu.Color:=clRed;
MyXPMenu.SelectBorderColor:=clYellow;
...
(there are several)

You should be able to set UseSystemColors and the color values themselves in the object inspector also, if you have installed the component.
