In FoxPro for MS-DOS, you can use the Color command on the Screen menu to specify colors for screen objects. However, this command is not available in FoxPro for Windows.

FoxPro 2.x for Windows

To specify colors in FoxPro 2.x for Windows, select the screen object or a group of objects. To modify the background color of the object(s), choose Fill Color from the Object menu. To modify the outline and text of the object(s), choose Pen Color from the Object menu.

NOTE: The Automatic setting will match the Windows color sets from the Control Panel.

To change the background of the entire screen, choose Layout from the Screen menu, and choose the Color button. You can either select a specific color or select a wallpaper pattern by choosing the Wallpaper button and specifying a .BMP file.
