Custom Drawing CEdit : Subclassing

Hello experts,

My objective is simple, but I'm not entirely sure what needs tweaking.

I am using MSVC 6, and I would like to subclass the CEdit box so that
it appears as the color-picker editbox of a PropertyGrid. There is a
color box followed by three values. Like this:

[###]  255; 192; 192

Where ### is just a color box representation of the value.

So thus far, I've made a masked CEdit box, where I can edit the numbers
(or click a button that visually sets the numbers from a different
window), and I'm happy with that - but what I would like to do next is
to subclass the drawing of the edit box, so that it offsets the text
portion (255;192;192) to the right, and allows me room to draw a color

Not sure how to do that.

Any ideas?

Overriding CEdit::OnPaint doesn't seem to be a good idea, and CEdit
doesn't look like it has any OwnerDraw functionality (or am I missing
something there?)

Try SetMargins.

Custom Entity Relationship CRM 3.0
I have created a new custom entity (A) for which I need to create two referential relationships to other custom entities (B) & (C). (A) is the primary entity in both cases. The relationship between (A) and (B) acts normally. The relationship between (A) and (C) doesn't. When I try to add a (C) record from (A), (A) displays two records in the (C) lookup. One "record" displays data from system fields (created on and status). The second "record" displys data from the primary field.

Tracking customer orders when receiving stock
With our current POS system we can place items on order for a particular customer (whether we are holding the stock or not) and when we generate purchase orders the system automatically pops up letting us know we have pending orders for customers. We can then generate a purchase order based on this information. When we receive the stock, we can print out a report for that order that lists what stock needs to be allocated to which customers. Is there a way with RMS that we can do this? Unfortunately it is a regular occurance that our stock levels can be incorrect, for instance we may have a 0 ...

Custom colors
I hope someone can help me out on this one please! I mixed a few new colors using RGB that I want applied to certain cells on a spreadsheet that will be shared among many users. The problem is, I noticed that setting RGB only changes the color pallette and if the user resets or changes their color pallette, then my colors are all reset on the spreadsheet (and they look bad!). Apparently its all linked by the color index? i.e. If the user changes their color index, that change updates the spreadsheet color.
