Changing the color of buttons

I’m having trouble changing the color of Buttons in WxRuby. I’m calling
set_background_colour (and set_foreground_colour) and the calls return
true,
but the button remains gray.

In searching the documentation it seems that the problem might be
related to
should_inherit_colours, which can prohibit color changes, but the
documentation is confusing. (Doesn’t specify whether
should_inherit_colours
should return true or false.)

Any suggestions?

Generally a major part of wxRuby’s approach is that standard native
controls like Wx::Button take the standard theme colours, depending on
the user’s desktop settings. You don’t mention what platform you’re
using, but I’d expect that some desktops just won’t permit non-standard
colours to be used here.

If you could say more about what your application’s trying to do here,
perhaps we could suggest a better way of desiging a UI that will achieve
it whilst still looking harmonious. There are several other options eg
Wx::BitmapButton.
