    CStatic

    is it possible just to change the text color of a CStatic control? i made a class derived from CStatic and i want to change the text color on MouseMove event i dont wanna use the paint event because i will have to use my own text wrap function and i dont wanna use that, for now i got this code:
    Code:
    HBRUSH CLabel::CtlColor(CDC* pDC, UINT nCtlColor) 
    {
    	CDC dc;
    	HBRUSH brush;
    	pDC->SetBkMode(TRANSPARENT);
    	pDC->SelectObject(&m_font);
    	pDC->SetTextColor(m_color);
    	dc.CreateCompatibleDC(pDC);
    	dc.SelectObject(&((CChateXDlg*)AfxGetMainWnd())->m_bmp);
    	brush = (HBRUSH)::CreateSolidBrush(dc.GetPixel(24, 24));
    	dc.DeleteDC();
    	return brush;
    }
    thanks

    You create the brush on the stack. Create a brush as member of the class.

    Create a class member of type HBRUSH. You only need to create one brush object. Update via SetDCBrushColor().
