#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

_Main()

Func _Main()
    GUICreate("Combo Background")
    GUICtrlCreateCombo("Combo", 10, 20)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Combo|Combo|Combo")
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00FF00) ; Green
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_Main

I'm actually trying to change the default combo color if a specific situation occurs.

Try this and see if it sets to pink automatically or if you need to hover your mouse:

#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIComboBox.au3>

Global  $GUIWidth = 789, $GUIHeight = 613, $Cliente
Dim $posX = (@DesktopWidth - $GUIWidth) / 2
Dim $posY = (@DesktopHeight - $GUIHeight) / 2
$Form1 = GUICreate("Gui demo", $GUIWidth, $GUIHeight, $posX, $posY, -1, 0x00000018)
$Combo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Name", 32, 280, 137, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

GUICtrlSetBkColor($Combo,0xff8080)

While 1

    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        EndSwitch
WEnd

If i try to set the combo color, (GUICtrlSetBkColor right after the GUICtrlCreateCombo) it works perfectly, but if i try to change it after, i need to hover the mouse.

Yep! It's really weird.

Try this >>

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

_Main()

Func _Main()
    Local $aControlGetPos, $hGUI, $iButton, $iCombo, $pRect

    $hGUI = GUICreate("Combo Background")
    $iCombo = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Combo", 10, 20)
    GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Combo|Combo|Combo")
    GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x00FF00) ; Green
    $iButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Change Colour", 10, 50, 85, 25)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
                Exit

            Case $iButton
                GUICtrlSetBkColor($iCombo, 0xFF0000) ; Red
                $aControlGetPos = ControlGetPos($hGUI, "", $iCombo) ; GUICtrlSetState($iCombo, $GUI_FOCUS)
                $pRect = DllStructGetPtr("int " & $aControlGetPos[0] & ";int " & $aControlGetPos[1] & ";int " & $aControlGetPos[0] + $aControlGetPos[2] & ";int " & $aControlGetPos[1] + $aControlGetPos[3] & ";")
                DllCall("user32.dll", "bool", "InvalidateRect", "hwnd", $hGUI, "ptr", $pRect, "bool", True)

        EndSwitch
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_Main

I learnt about InvalidateRect from smartee! ;) Plus, it wasn't made clear in your original post that this was your problem! :huh2:

I just discovered it a couple of days ago, when I ran into the same issue, so it was very fresh in my mind. ;)
