text color of a check box

Hello,

I have overwritten the OnCtlColor function where we are changing the text color of a check box. But it is not working. Please help on that.

code:

HBRUSH OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
{


      if(nCtlColor == CTLCOLOR_BTN)
      {
            pDC->SetBkMode(TRANSPARENT);
            pDC->SetTextColor(RGB(255, 0,0));
      }

return m_brush;//white brush
      
}

We are using MFC.

Note: It works on windows classic theme but doesn't work in window7.

When themes are enabled (i.e. not Classic) ComCtl6 takes over the drawing of Check, Option, and CommandButton so I doubt you could change this unless you make your own custom control and draw the text manually via API TextOut or DrawText.
