How to color a string ?

Ankita Srivastava
In CwMessagePrompter class i want to change the color of the message string to red or green. In below example I want the message to be displayed in red or green.
CwMessagePrompter
                message: 'This is a test of #message:title:iconType: '
                title: 'an unimaginative title'
                iconType: nil

 Is it possible ? if yes, please let me know the solution.

A quick reply is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello Ankita,

On Windows, the CwMessagePrompter is just a small wrapper around to what is essentially a configured call to the Windows MessageBox function.
For whatever reason, the styling capability that you want is not exposed by windows.  You would need to create a custom control that looks and acts
like a message box, but has this extended capability.
The following from the MS site shows the full capabilities of a MessageBox
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms645505%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

We have a coloured button that might help. I will fish out the code and put it on our web site - probably tomorrow.
You may be able to see how we did the colouring and apply it to your problem.

OK I have put our coloured button app on Dropbox - http://bit.ly/2p74JVr - you may be able to glean something from that.
