System Color Changer

Environment: Windows

This is the simplest of utilities intended to make UI testing easier by allowing you to change the system colors (as specified in the documentation for GetSysColor) with the click of a button. Simply run the executable and then click on the Tray icon, select the system color you want to change from the menu, and then select the desired color from the standard Color Dialog. You can later use to the Restore command to restore the previous color.

I have many enhancements in mind, but I wanted to at least get this up in case someone might get some use of it it.

I didn't include the source because I haven't had time to clean it up--it's embarassing. However until I do get the time to do this, I did want to make available the utility so that people can start getting some use out of it.

    Additionally you can add x instances to the tray if you start the app x times.
    Clicking with the right button stops the app (may be intended ?)
