The SB_SETBKCOLOR message only seems to be able to set the background color for the entire status bar.

I would like to set the background color of the individual parts.

Any help appreciated.

Hi Mike,

This should do it for ya, haven't figured out the size grip yet but I will look into it. Can't remember which assembler you use so I did it in MASM...

Hi Donkey,

As always, I graciously thank you for your kind help.

It is almost 1:00 AM here so I just had a peek at your zip.

It does just what I need.

Since none replied (until you, I gave up and solved the problem by
putting static text over each section).

Tomorrow I will look at the detail of your solution. As always, I thank you.

donkey: (or any one that can help out)

Your odstatus code was very informative, but how do you perform the same coloring of a static control?


Some Text ; now has the normal ugly gray color.

The Static Control (Label ) is a part of a Dialog RC.

I wish to change the background and text color.
