Dear ProfUIS,

In my MDI base application I am using current theame as CExtPaintManagerOffice2007_R3_Silver .
When I get Background color from that using
COLORREF BkColor=g_PaintManager->GetColor(CExtPaintManager::CLR_3DFACE_OUT,this);
& use this color to create a solid brush to draw a solid rect on another dialog , but this color looks to be white .

Is there another method to get exact theme color value .

In the Office 2007 themes, color values are used for specifying text colors. The backgrounds of all the UI items are based on bitmaps and gradients . So it is not clear what you need this color for?
