Simple, hopefully.

How do i set the background color of the internal area of a group?

$Group = GUICtrlCreateGroup( "", 5, 0, 640, 495 )
GUICtrlSetBkColor ( $Group , 0x000000 )

I don't think it is so simple unless someone can say how, at least in XP windows sets the groups to have the window colour I think.

I would add a child window with a style $WS_POPUP and make it the size of the group, set its colour to the background colour you want for the group and put the group on the child window.

This is a simple way
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI group", 300, 280)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$iBkClr = 0xFFFFA8
GUICtrlCreateInput("", 150, 66, 100, 134)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

GUICtrlCreateGroup ("", 150, 60, 100, 140)
$radio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 1", 160, 90, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
$radio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 2", 160, 120, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
GUICtrlCreateGroup ("",-99,-99,1,1)  ;close group
GUISetState ()       ; will display an empty dialog box

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

That's good picaxe. The corners of the group are not rounded, but it works better with a label.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <windowsconstants.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI group", 300, 280) ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$iBkClr = 0xFFFFA8
;GUICtrlCreateInput("", 120, 66, 100, 134)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("",150,66,100,134)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

GUICtrlCreateGroup ("abcdef", 150, 60, 100, 140)
$radio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 1", 160, 90, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
$radio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 2", 160, 120, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
GUICtrlCreateGroup ("",-99,-99,1,1) ;close group
GUISetState ()    ; will display an empty dialog box

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

Hi, Another way to fake a group so you have rounded corners is use a disabled button

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI group", 300, 280)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$iBkClr = 0xFFFFA8
GUICtrlCreateButton("", 150, 60, 100, 140)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

$radio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 1", 160, 90, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
$radio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 2", 160, 120, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)

GUISetState ()       ; will display an empty dialog box

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

@smashly - Great idea, looks much better

@Martin - I didn't like the label text disrupting the group boundary line. Should probably be more like this

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate("My GUI group", 300, 280)  ; will create a dialog box that when displayed is centered

$iBkClr = 0xFFFFA8
GUICtrlCreateButton("", 150, 60, 100, 140)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Some Text", 166, 62, 65, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 600, 0)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x000080)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
$radio_1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 1", 170, 100, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)
$radio_2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ("Radio 2", 170, 130, 60, 20)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, $iBkClr)

GUISetState ()       ; will display an empty dialog box

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

No, I didn't like it either. Maybe this is better.
