How to change button background color? [message #453822] Mon, 11 April 2005 13:41 Go to next message

Hi,

Does anyone know how to change a button's background color? It seems that
the following statement has no effect:

button1.setBackground((button1.getDisplay().getSystemColor(S WT.COLOR_CYAN)));

If you apply the same thing to another control, e.g. a shell, it does work
fine:

shell.setBackground((shell.getDisplay().getSystemColor(SWT.C OLOR_CYAN)));

I found a lot of similar problems reported on other forums, but no real
solutions...

Thanks,

Mario Van Assche

You can't do it on windows.
