Unanswered: Customising appearance of command buttons?
Does anybody know if there is a way to customise the appearance of command buttons? I know you can customise input boxes etc, like background colour and border style, using the Properties list, but there doesn't seem to be any option for command buttons. Please tell me there is a way, otherwise my database is going to look incredibly ugly.
Well...since you are indeed interested...I took the liberty to create a sample (attached).
I'm not very artsy but I think you can get the idea. The code is not commented since it is quite easy to follow the little bit of code there is.
In the sample I have provided several different looking types of buttons with each button consisting of two Image controls.
I have also provided code to simulate Mouse Off Cancel to the Exit button on the form. Mouse Off Cancel is where the mouse button is pressed but if you change your mind while still holding down the left mouse button and move it off the button control, the button is not activated.
To make the sample smaller...I could have Linked the images to their respective controls but this would slow down the effect quite a bit therefore the images are embedded.
You can also use any bmp pic (maybe others as well, not sure), resize it to whatever you like and use that with your toolbox to create buttons. You can add whatever text you want and customize it pretty easy. An example is that I have my baby girl opening a state census page.
