Hello Jerry,

> I need to change the background of a window that has been created, can

Answer depends upon the type of window. Typically you can do this in OnEraseBkgnd. 
Certain controls respond to WM_CTLCOLOR and yet some other, like CButton, 
need to be owner drawn to change the color. 

If you have a generic CWnd, you can always specify the brush in the window 
class; so no special painting is needed. This is good when you know that 
the background will have one color all the time.

Hi Ajay,

Thank you for your reply. The window I want to change background color
is from IE WebBrowser control. I used spy++ to find that its class name
is "IE Explorer_Server" and background color handle is NULL. I tried to
use SetClassLong( GCL_HBRBACKGROUND) to set BG color to black, but
still white background.

Thank you,

Windows Conversion
I have an Access 2000 database which runs perfectly until i loaded it on a new machine. This machine was loaded with Windows 2000 and Access 2000 but it behaves in an odd way. When I go to a pop up form it looses track of the current record when returning to the main part of the system and it appears to do this randomly, sometimes it is OK then it all collapses! I suspect that it may be due to later updates in Windows that somehow make it not backward compatible. I have tried the database on different older machines and in Access 2002, 2003 and it is all OK there. Any suggestions p...
