Design Your Colors So User Can Change Them

Pay close attention to the color selections you make in your forms.Windows 95 gives the user more control over colors than previous versionsof Windows allowed. problems arise if the user sets 3-D colors to somethingother than gray or sets a 3-D text color other than that used for windowtext (even Windows 95 does not handle this case properly in some places).When available, setting the Appearance property to 3D should handle this.However, you need to test for this by setting all your system colors tosomething unusual. Create and save a test scheme in your Control Panel/Displaydialog so you can switch back and forth between your usual cool colorsand your ugly test colors. A properly written Windows 95 program shouldnot hard-code colors for its windows. It should allow the user to decidewhat is cool and what is ugly.
