    Hello All

    I have MFC Dialog based application.

    I have to change the Background color of parent dialog when the Child Dialog CheckBox is clicked.

    Pass the needed message to the parent dialog and this should do it.

    Depends on your implementation but CTLCOLOR related messages.

    First try to change them using the same dialog and then try doing it from other dialog
