Parameters

StartChar
0-based index value of start character
EndChar
0-based index value of end character

Property Value

RGB value for the text background color for the specified characters; if not specified, then the background color for this control is used

Remarks

You can use a group box with just a label to look like a message box on a PropertyManager page. Set the background of the group box and the background of the label to the same color and the label text to a different color. You can also position the group box anywhere on the PropertyManager page.

 

NOTE: If you want to set the background color of the message box to be the same as the color typically used by SOLIDWORKS for a message box, use ISldWorks::GetUserPreferenceIntegerValue swPropertyManagerColorImportantMessage to get the COLORREF value.
