    changing color of a static window

    Code:
    orange = CreateWindow(_T("STATIC"),_T("     "),
    						WS_VISIBLE | BS_VCENTER | BS_OWNERDRAW | WS_CHILD,
    					    330,30,15,15,
    						topic,NULL,(HINSTANCE) GetWindowLong(hwnd, GWL_HINSTANCE),NULL);
    is there any way to change the background color on that?

    Use WM_CTLCOLOR or WM_CTLCOLORSTATIC.
