static text color - what am I missing?
I've been trying to change the color of a static text now for sometime but have still been unsuccessful - I followed this example on msdn which compiles fine but my static text color still remains black:

I've initialized my solid brush to a blue and then copied their example into my dialog app - IDC_MYSTATIC static still remains black!
Thanks for your time - by the way, can anyone also tell me how to encapsulate a code chunk in these posts with the 'code' tags, I didn't see it in the how to post a question message.

to the message map. Then the rest of the sample code from msdn took effect.
