   COLORREF crColor 



Specifies the color of the text as an RGB color value.

An RGB value for the previous text color.

The system will use this text color when writing text to this device context and also when converting bitmaps between color and monochrome device contexts.

If the device cannot represent the specified color, the system sets the text color to the nearest physical color. The background color for a character is specified by the SetBkColor and SetBkMode member functions.

See the example for CWnd::OnCtlColor.
