#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("My GUI color text") ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

GUICtrlCreateCheckbox ("my Red label", 10,20)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0xff0000); Red
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1,0x00ff00) ; Green

GUISetState ()

; Run the GUI until the dialog is closed
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then ExitLoop
