Colour of combobox on components page


Having never been one to leave things alone, I'm in the process of forcing the colours of every single control in my installer. On the components page, for instance, I do this:


; Change the text and background colours of all controls on the page
FindWindow $0 "#32770" "" $HWNDPARENT
SetCtlColors $0 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1006 ; Static text
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1021 ; "Select the installation type" static text
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1017 ; Installation type combobox control
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${WHITE}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1022 ; "Select the components" static text
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1032 ; Components treeview control
SendMessage $1 ${TVM_SETBKCOLOR} 0 ${WHITE}
SendMessage $1 ${TVM_SETTEXTCOLOR} 0 ${BLACK}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1023 ; "Space required" static text
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1042 ; Description groupbox control
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}
GetDlgItem $1 $0 1043 ; Description static text
SetCtlColors $1 ${BLACK} ${GRAY}

Which works fine, but there are 2 things I don't know how to do. How would I change the colour of 1) the dropdown part of the combobox control (dialog id # 1017) and 2) the "Description" title of the groupbox control (dialog id # 1042)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
