 BackColor in ComboBox


here's a problem that should be easy - but if it is I'm obviously
overlooking something very simple.

I've got my machine running in 24bit colour and have a fwe combo boxes where
I want the backcolor to match that of the Tooltip colour. I've selected this
in the backcolor property and all appears okay. However, when I drop down to
256 colours (like my
users) I get the tooltip colour has expected, but not where there is text.
i.e. the background colour of the text is white. Needless to say this looks

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I'm going wrong?
