See below, after updating to 2.84:

Please fix (there is a text there - 5678...).

We are not sure Windows XP is the source of the problem:

Which XP exactly you are using? Which service pack? Which desktop theme?

Maybe it’s the theme - I use Royale... in any case, I changed it from disabled to read-only, which is better solution. Thanks anyhow.

Here is what we see with Royale:

But we didn’t test the Media Center. We just copied the Royale theme data into Windows XP Professional English SP3 for testing.

The read-only edit boxes use the same text color as the enabled edit boxes but they use different background colors. We guess you simply disabled some of your edit boxes instead of making them read-only:

I’m sorry, but this is not what I get... can you please from what sample you took this capture?

We used the Popup Menus page of the ProfUIS_Controls sample . We put an IDC_EDIT_INCREASE_PERCENT edit control in the IDD_PAGE_POPUP_MENUS dialog template resource enabled but read-only (it’s disabled by default). Then we compiled and run the ProfUIS_Controls sample on Windows Vista and we saw what’s on the screenshot.

Can it be different because I am using XP?
