How can I set the text color of an edit box on a dialog with the style of Child?  I have tried solutions using OnCtlColor in the dialog code but it never seems to get executed.  I am setting the values in the editbox from the MainFrm.cpp of the MDI project.  The dialog is always visible, not called like a temporary dialog.

Thanks for any help.
