Handle the WM_CTLCOLORDLG message (OnCtlColor CTLCOLOR_DLG in MFC)
and return a brush of the colour you want.

Thanks but it didn't work!
here is the code that I wrote:
HBRUSH CDialogAppCon::OnCtlColor(CDC* pDC, CWnd* pWnd, UINT nCtlColor)
HBRUSH hbr = CDialog::OnCtlColor(pDC, pWnd, nCtlColor);

I'm a new programmer with C++
We are using VC++6 I'd like to know if it's possible to give a backgroung
color to a label (static text) from my code.
I want to change the background color of a lable (static text) depending on
what the user choose from a combo box color
I think you can subclass your "static class" window and write your own
WM_ERASEBKGND message handler....
Something like this:
class CMyStaticText: public CStatic
afx_msg BOOL OnEraseBkgnd(CDC *);

In this program which works until I added the .cells color - basically I

Several lines were shaded the standard beige that appears on the color
scheme chart when the color chart icon is pressed in Excel 2000. To my

changed to a cruddy gray. When I looked at the chart again, where the beige
had been is now that crummy gray... as it appears in several other boxes of

text reading of "Color Scheme" rather than the name of the color the cursor

...Code to delete rows excluding Header if not = to
I have the following code to delete all rows that do not contain the
following two variables, in column P, "cw" and "ea".
Set ws = ActiveSheet
For p = ws.Range("P65536").End(xlUp).Row To 1 Step -1
If ws.Cells(p, 16) <> "cw" Then
If ws.Cells(p, 16) <> "ea" Then
It works very well apart from the fact that it deletes the Header row.
Please can someone assist me in modifying this code so it does not delete Row
1 (the header row).

...Excel 2007 Change Standard Colors How?
I just started Excel 2007. My spreadsheets typically have a lot of cells
that are color filled. When I work on a old or new one, I find the light
bright color fills of 2003 aren't there as defaults or easy to find without
multiple clicks. Is there a way to change the standard colors presented when
you click on the paint bucket?

Only way is to get Office XP (excel 2002)...Squeaky clean code: Trapping & passing on WM_SYSCOMMAND
I've written custom code to minimize my app by overriding WindowProc(),

SC_MINIMIZE. Pretty standard stuff, but my question is:
What is the absolutely correct way to pass on other (non-SC_MINIMIZE)
messages? I'm assuming I don't want to pass on the message I'm looking
for after I've processed it myself(?) I need to return something that
resolves to a successful LRESULT, but I don't know if that's simply the
boolean TRUE or not.

when you are composing messages or viewing them in the message list?
to change it on a message form, you need to change the windows defaults; you
can change it for the message list by editing the automatic formatting
settings for the view.

Neither Word nor your printer has any way of knowing what color paper
you are putting into your printer. If you try to print (for instance)
with red ink on green paper, of course it will look black!

Has anyone ever seen or created such a code generator?
I'm looking for a sample of a code generator that will generate code
(preferably one that uses C# and the XMLTextWriter) to create an XML
document structure based on an XML file as input.
I have to build some classes that allow me to generate some very
complex/large/nasty XML documents for use in B2B exchange of data (like
invoices, orders, etc.). A third party has dictated the structure and
provided example XML documents. Instead of hand coding these classes,
