GetProfileBackColor Method (Headline Control)
Windows - Visual C++

The GetProfileBackColor method returns the background color for headlines associated with the specified profile.

unsigned long color = GetProfileBackColor(LPCTSTR profileCode);

The GetProfileBackColor syntax has these parts:




A String containing a two-letter code representing the profile.


Return value. A value or constant that determines the background color of headlines associated with the profile, as described in Remarks.

The color can be either normal RGB (red, green, blue) or system default colors. Normal RGB colors are specified by using the Visual C++ color palette or by using the Visual C++ RGB or QBColor functions. System default colors are listed in the Visual C++ object library in the Object Browser. The user's choices will be substituted as specified in the Control Panel settings.

It is possible for the profile background color of a headline to conflict with the newswire background color. The NewsWiresHavePriority property provides a way to resolve this conflict. It is also possible to have conflicting profile background colors if a headline is associated with more than one profile. The SetProfilePriority method provides a way to resolve this conflict.
