Unresolved - Can You Change The Menu Bar Color On Forms && The Face Color On SSTabs?
Is there a way to change the menu bar color on particular forms during runtime? I only have 1 form open at any any given time in my app... Also, is there a way to change the back color of an SSTab control during runtime so that the entire surface of the SStab is the new color?? When I change the back color it doesn't change the color of the active SSTab face, but only the color behind the tabs somewhere, as I can see the new color barely displayed between the SSTab tabs.

Change Command Buttons
I have a program with an options page that has several command buttons to choose from in order to proceed. These command buttons are stacked on top of each other, with an equal amount of spacing. I am using VB6 to program, and I'm using the MouseMove event to enlarge the button and bold the font on the button. When I move off of the button, I use the MouseMove event of the scroller box behind it to change it back. My problem is that if the mouse is moved to fast, then several buttons may change at the same time and stay that way until I move off the final button. I would like to have only one button changed at a time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Enabling Buttons After Change
I have a form with textboxes and comboboxes. When the form loads for the first time none of the controls are populated with values so the print and save buttons are disabled. As soon as a key value is inserted in the first textbox the print button only is enabled. I need to enable the save button only if the value of one of the textboxes or comboboxes change. I cannot use the change event of these controls since a few of them populate automatically if the key value matches an existing value in the database. Is there a way of enabling the save button after a change is made once the form is loaded? Thanks!!
