__VSSYSCOLOREX supersedes the deprecated VSSYSCOLOR enumeration.

Members of __VSSYSCOLOREX are used as arguments to GetVSSysColorEx to obtain the correct system color value for a given object.

For a full discussion of best practices for making color choices using VSSYSCOLOREX, see PAVE: Visual Studio User Interface Design Guidelines.
