[vc++ .net 2005] changing color of disabled button?

Hi all,

I have a button that can be enable or disable. When it's disabled, only the text color on the button changes from black to grey. But, I want more noticible change when button is disabled. Is there any way to make it noticible? I was thinking to change the color of the button itself. Does anyone know how to do? Any other method is welcomed too.

I this a .NET form (just do set the BackColor property of the button - like "button1->BackColor = System::Drawing::Color::CadetBlue;") or something else?

The problem is going to be when you set Enabled = false, then you can't change the text color.  Another problem is that when FlatStyle = System, then you can't change the BackColor for the button.
