Change Highlight color on Context Menu

Hi, any way to change the default highlight color on a context menu from the
ugly yellow? Thanks.

What ugly yellow? You can go to the "properties" tab of the Wizard
and play with Forecolor, Transparency, and/or do it programmically
using the properties, but I find that the artist(s) employed by
Microsoft to do the color coordinating have done a pretty good job, so
I stick with the defaults.

The more I program the more I see that graphic art is really a science
(or is it an art?) in and of itself--lots of work has to be done--
almost as much as code writing--to get the form to look just right.
