My application has real time sync with the outlook. I would like to set the color category of the particular appointment in Outlook. The appointment color will be chosen in the application. And it is being shown in the small box. How to apply the same color in the outlook appointment from my application? Am using the following code to paint the small box.

	hDC = GetDC(hCtrl);
	GetClientRect (hCtrl, &rect);
	lbrush.lbStyle = BS_SOLID;
	lbrush.lbColor = (tempact.color) ? tempact.color : GetProjectColor(project);
	lbrush.lbHatch = HS_VERTICAL;
	hOldBrush = (HBRUSH)SelectObject(hDC, CreateBrushIndirect(&lbrush));

That same question was just asked a day ago, perhaps by yourself under a different account name? It doesn't help to repeat that.

Is your problem in the realm of VC6 or Outlook? Please update the tags accordingly.

Are you trying to set the category color in Outlook manually or programatically?

My account was needed my email verification. So they provided me an alternate account. So I am not trying to blame you in repeating the same question.
