SetBackgroundColour

----------------------------------

Remarks

The background colour is usually painted by the default wxEraseEvent (p. 571) event handler function under Windows and automatically under GTK. Note that setting the background colour does not cause an immediate refresh, so you may wish to call wxWindow::ClearBackground (p. 1802) or wxWindow::Refresh (p. 1831) after calling this function.

Using this function will disable attempts to use themes for this window, if the system supports them. Use with care since usually the themes represent the appearance chosen by the user to be used for all applications on the system.

SetForegroundColour

----------------------------------

Remarks

The interpretation of foreground colour is open to interpretation according to the window class; it may be the text colour or other colour, or it may not be used at all.

Using this function will disable attempts to use themes for this window, if the system supports them. Use with care since usually the themes represent the appearance chosen by the user to be used for all applications on the system.

There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over...
