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

The GetProfileForeColor method returns the text color for headlines associated with the specified profile.

unsigned long color = GetProfileForeColor(LPCTSTR profileCode);

The GetProfileForeColor syntax has these parts:




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


Return value. A value or constant that determines the text 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 text color of a headline to conflict with the newswire text color. The NewsWiresHavePriority property provides a way to resolve this conflict. It is also possible to have conflicting profile text colors if a headline is associated with more than one profile. The SetProfilePriority method provides a way to resolve this conflict.
