    Subclassing solves a lot of problems.
    Code:
       #Compile Exe
       #Dim All
       #Register None
       #Include "Win32Api.Inc"
    
       Global CheckBoxProcOr As Long
    
       CallBack Function CheckBoxProc
          Select Case CbMsg
             Case %WM_NCHITTEST: Function = %HTNOWHERE: Exit Function
             Case %WM_KEYDOWN, %WM_KEYUP, %WM_CHAR: Exit Function
             Case %WM_DESTROY: SetWindowLong CbHndl, %GWL_WNDPROC, CheckBoxProcOr: Exit Function
          End Select
          Function = CallWindowProc(CheckBoxProcOr, CbHndl, CbMsg, CbWparam, CbLparam)
       End Function
    
       CallBack Function DlgProc
          Select Case CbMsg
             Case %WM_INITDIALOG
                Control Add Button, CbHndl, 101,"Button 1", 10, 5, 80, 15
                Control Add CheckBox, CbHndl, 102, "Click me", 10, 25, 80, 15
                Control Add Button, CbHndl, 103,"Button 2", 10, 45, 80, 15
                Control Set Check CbHndl, 102, %True
                CheckBoxProcOr = SetWindowLong(GetDlgItem(CbHndl, 102), %GWL_WNDPROC, CodePtr(CheckBoxProc))
          End Select
       End Function
    
    
       Function PbMain
          Local hDlg As Long
          Dialog New 0 ,"Test",,, 100, 70, %WS_SYSMENU Or %WS_CAPTION Or %WS_MINIMIZEBOX To hDlg
          Dialog Show Modal hDlg, Call DlgProc
       End Function

    Eric,

    Thanks for the suggestion, but in my case I have edit controls that are read only and as such appear gray w/black text

    I need to get the checkbox's gray w/black text as well so as to not ruin the "look" of the dialog.

    You could try drawing a checkbox instead of using the checkbox control. Take a look at the DrawFrameControl API... It allows you to draw a checkbox in any state, and clicking on it will have no more effect than clicking on a bitmap.

    started a topic Read Only Style

    Read Only Style

    The edit control can be set with a read only style. Do CheckBox's, or ComboBox's have a similar style or a way to prevent changing the state?

    *** OR ***

    I can detect the CheckBox control getting focus and redirect it but how would I then change the color of the check box from white to gray to match the read only style.

    Disabled style is not an option due to the fact it makes the text inside of it dark gray in lieu of black.

    I checked the WIN32API and it appears there isn't an equivelent style that I can ascertain.

    P.S. To further add to it I am using a custom bitmap background for the dialog
