does anyone know (if possible at all!) how to change the systemwide hardwired text selection color for a edit(text) control and/or richedit control? The color (if not changed on systemwide settings) is mostly a dark blue variant you see when selecting some text inside the controls. A problem arises if one has a control with exactly that background color. There is a GetSysColor() with COLOR_HIGHLIGHTTEXT, the same can be set, but only systemwide. It would be amazing if there would be some way to do this on a control level basis.
