    Unanswered: increase the size of the Check Boxes

    How can I increase the size of the Check Boxes within the Option Group?
    Every time I clicked on the check box control and changed the width or height in the property settings, it expanded the frame but didn't change the size of the check box. Do I need to turn-off? the option group first? How?

    Thanks!!

    Re: increase the size of the Check Boxes

    A larger monitor will provide larger checkboxes. And slowly rocking back and forth in front of the screen will produce the illusion of variable sized check boxes. Ha ha, very funny

    Sorry, I know of no way to change the size. Another limitation I have found was the font size on msgbox. Does anyone know how to modify either of these things?

    can't be done imo.

    you could make your own fake checkbox:
    text box,
    font with tick-mark available (on ALL users' machines please),
    intercept an event* and code .value= tick-or-null to suit.

    *event= _click, _mousedown, _enter etc... you need to experiment to see which gives the most realistic checkbox simulation.
