ProgressBar ForeColor on Windows8

Post by mikejwhitehead »

Hi Forum,

Looking if you anyone knows of a workaround here. I have a progress bar in my multi-form project and I have set the fore color of the control to match the color scheme of my application.

When running the form on Windows8, the progress bar automatically uses the accent color of the Windows theme. Anybody know how to force my progress bar's custom color on Windows 8?
