How do you set the background color (where the text is) for a checkbox button? I am putting this control on a window (not a dialog box) that is a different color than COLOR_WINDOW. The problem is the checkbox background color is COLOR_WINDOW.

I tried using SetClassLong but it had no effect.

Any help will be appreciated.

Here is an old (not that old, indeed) post where you can find a full explanation of the subject
And if you make a search for 'background AND color' I think you will find also some other threads.

I wonder why I missed that thread when I tried to search? :confused:
