There are some demos floating around using WMLiberty to change the control colors of individual controls.
A listbox demo is posted here, a textbox demo is posted on conforums and a statictext demo is posted on the Yahoo! group, I think.

Since all those demos share a common structure, I think Brent is responsible for their birth, so I am posting here in his forum.

It would make it easier to point people to a common place, so consolidating those demos to a single one, which shows how to change colors for any control individually.

There have been requests to change the background color of textboxes, if the entry was wrong too.
I think this should be doable, using the RedrawWindow API function as shown by Brent in ...Color$ variables subtlety workaround ... ?

What do you think about this Question

Good idea, Stefan!

Toggle TextBox Colors

Thanks for the demo.

We can set the initial text box color by setting TextBoxColor$ just before the textbox definition, but there is no way to do this for several other controls.

I do have a demo for statictext (White on Blue), since it uses the same structure and branch names, so I assume it is yours Brent.
Would you like to have it sent to you, so you could post it on the snippets board for verification too?
