I'm still stuck on win7 but I guess what you mean. Since WinXP there are several window managers (like aero, xp-style, old-school,...) and some of these are using extra colors besides the old-school window manager for which the old API was engineered. Sometimes the api lies to your program depending on windows version compatibility settings and the manifest you put into your program. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some fancy APIs to query the REAL colors in another way or with different constants from a newer SDK but I avoided making headaches for myself by polishing GUIs with WinAPI in the last few years... Smile | :) I guess you have better things to do and customizing the menus is one particular thing that really sucks. In my opinion most of the winapi controls, especially the older ones (including menus) are not good candidates for customization. Things could be worse only if you wanted to customize the menu borders: I've seen code that handled undocumented mouse messages and installed cbt hooks - made me sick and I always started vomiting while reading it... Once I was dreaming about creating a gui skinner lib but I got bored of it halfway when I got to know the sad truth and the mountain of hacks involved...
