hey, i have a "login" window for this program i'm writing. the login is locally, not very secure, etc. but i dont need it to be fort knox as this is my first time playing around with such methods. however, my question is about something that irritates me to no end...on my login window, theres the window, menu, edit box, and button. you can see it here:
the background of the login window is white. i would like to paint it a different color. i know how to create a brush..but i dont know how to modify the color of that area. right now for HWND's that i have declared, theres one for the main window, one for the login button, one for the edit box, and one for the status bar.
so..how do i do it? thanks.
