When changing the windows theme to a highcontrast theme the reportcontrol background color won't be updated. Is there a way to tell the reportcontrol to update its systemcolors? I've tried these function:
- ColorManager.SetColor(lngColorLoop, ColorManager.Color(lngColorLoop))
- Paintmanager.Refreshmetrics
- Redraw
 
Thanks in advance!

Alright. I found out that this is a control problem. The report control is on a usercontrol and the usercontrol is on a picturebox therefore does not receive the right messages to update its colors. Without the picturebox the reportcontrol updates its colors but it doesn't redraw until you select the form the reportcontrol is on.

Fonts are not updated at all. When you set a different or a bigger font the reportcontrols font stays the same. Even after a Paintmanager.Refreshmetrics and then a redraw.
