If you use a Microsoft Forms 2.0 command button, there is an option to TakeFocusOnClick. If you set it to false, the dotted line that goes around a button when it is clicked is not there. The problem is, Microsoft Forms 2.0 only works if you have ms office. How can I make regular command buttons not have that dotted line go around them when they are clicked?

Option Buttons And Command Buttons On A Different Form
my problem is, im making a quiz setter/taker.
i have 1 form to set the questions and 1 form to take the test.
on the set form, i have 5 text boxes, 1 for the question and 4 for 4 possible answers. next to the 4 text boxes i have an option button to select for which the correct answer is.
then i press the save button and go to the test form.
there i have 1 text box and 4 command buttons. the 4 answers appear in the command buttons to click. which ever button is clicked, the button changes yellow to indicate the buttons has been selected.
then i press a submit button to reveal the correct answer.
what i want to do it make the option i selected, if the command button chosen is wrong or right then it will change either red or green.
this will be a small peice of code probably but ive been trying all night and cant figure it out
ive put some command buttons in my vb app, but they like very dull.
how can i make them look better and more eye appealing
I am working on a form in VBA for excel -
I know you can group option buttons on a frame , so you can reference them easily -can you do the same for regular buttons ? - i looked for a groupname property like on the option buttons , but failed to find one
any help appreciated
How do I return a value for which command button was clicked without having to create a global variable?
How do you put an & on a button
I want to make a button with the caption
Save & Close = the S will be the hot key
Listed below is the code for a form I created. The name of the form is frmSampType. The form has one label and four buttons described below.
The label text is “Choose type of sample”
The button names and captions are as follows:
When I come to an appropriate point in the main macro I have a statement, Call SampForm, which simply calls the subroutine that shows the form on the screen (frmSampType.Show). The button selected will then determine future actions that occur in the main macro.
Ideally, I would have liked for certain values to be carried along to the main macro, such as the value of Q and the value of Cal when the Calibrator button is chosen, for example. Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that these values are lost after leaving the button-selected subroutine. Is there a way to carry these over?
Originally, I thought I could just select the appropriate button, then go to the main macro and then set values of Q and/or Cal there based on the caption property of the button I chose. That is, if the Calibrator button is chosen then I want the value of Q set to 3 and the value of Cal set to the input value. These values are then used later in the main macro. Couldn’t figure out appropriate code.
Private Sub cmdCancel_Click()
Private Sub cmdCalibrator_Click()
Dim Q As Integer
Dim Cal As String
Q = 3
Cal = InputBox("Enter Calibrator Concentration", "Calibrator Concentration", "47", 3500, 3000)
Private Sub cmdControl_Click()
Dim Q As Integer
Q = 5
Private Sub cmdStandard_Click()
Dim Q As Integer
Q = 5
Private Sub UserForm_Click()
Private Sub Label1_Click()

I am creating an instance of excel from within a VB program, in excel I disable the "worksheet menu bar" and create my own command bar with exit button on using the following code. When I do this it creates an error message saying cannot find "toolbars" macro. I want it to call a procedure in VB called "toolbars" not a macro.
Dim cbarScorecard As CommandBar
Dim cbtnExit As CommandBarButton
Set cbarScorecard = CommandBars.Add ("ScorecardMonitoringToolbar", msoBarTop)
cbarScorecard.Visible = True
Set cbtnExit = .Controls.Add(msoControlButton)
cbtnExit.Style = msoButtonIconAndCaption
cbtnExit.Caption = "&Exit"
cbtnExit.FaceId = 41
cbtnExit.OnAction = "Toolbars"
cbtnExit.ToolTipText = "Return to menu"
Any ideas would be much appreciated

Command Buttons =-.-'=
Hi, i've got a column of command buttons which change the picture on the buttons when you click on them (its has loops in so the user can easily see which tool they are using)
anyways while its in graphics style and flat mode when you run it its still 3D looking, do you know when you press the command buttons while its running (i'm talking about the 'down picture') is there anyway of keeping the 3D downess (i know its probably not even a word) on when the user depresses the mouse (mouse up)? i've tried to figure it out but couldn't,
and i don't think my explaination of the problem is making any sence.. anyone know what i'm talking about? (if not i'll get some screen shots)
Im trying to perform the following task, if we take today as an example. My form will have a dtpicker and 7 command buttons as follows:
today tommorrow Fri Sat Sun Mon Tues
so that if you click, lets say fri the dtpickers value will change to that of next fri, or whatever day. I also wish that when the dtpicker if lets say thursday the command buttons will change to:
today tommorrow Sat Sun Mon Tues Wed
Would i be better off coming up with something different or do you think this is ok to accomplish
Any help would be great

sorry but i´m a beginner
Does anybody know of a command button that will either manifest or already has the XP look. It would be useful if there was an option to revert to the W2K look as well.
I have tried the VB Smart .Net Button, but it does not look like XP.
I have tried the Chameleon button, but is does not support graphics.
Before anyone suggests the standard command button in common controls, it doesn't manifest when in graphical mode.

Question: How do I get a .Gif Control to Work like a Command Button. I need any sort of "Click" or "MouseDown" Option.
Please Help Me out. Please, and Thank you.
Is there a way to align the command button text to the left? It seems like it always is centered. Also, is there a difference between a flat command button and and 3D command button? It doesn't look like it.
Is there a way to create a command button and then when you click it make it stay down ?? like make it stay clicked down...but if you click it again it comes up ??
I'm sure I could play with the images to change them.. I was just wondering if there was a quick property I didnt see to do this..
Ok, I want to have my Command Button change from flat to raised on Mouseover.
An example might be in a Messenger chat window, with the Block, Font and Emotions buttons.
I don't mean using the Appearance properties....
I'm attempting to conditionally set a comand button to enable=True or False on my form load. Basically, I want to conditionally"lock" a button to prevent the user from clicking the key. It seems simple enough, but the setting doesn't seem to have an effect. Suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help.
For Each.....Command Buttons
On a button click iam trying to disable every single command button on a form... but instead of typing out every single button name and a setting enabled to false i was hoping to use a for each loop
Dim cmd As CommandButton
For Each cmd In Me.Controls
cmd.Enabled = False
Dim cmd As Button
For Each cmd In Me.Controls
cmd.Enabled = False
but neither of them seem to work??

can anyone please tell me how to do this
now look, i'm a realll newbie
but how do i open a new form through a command button?
How do i get a command button to look depressed when it has been clicked?
Using the code to make forms translucent (alphablending..i've attached the module) how could you make a command button translucent instead of the whole form?
I have a Command Button on my form, which for some strange reason needs me to double click on it, instead of single click.
On the form I have a MonthView, a label, a Timer and a Command Button.
Can anyone explain *** is going on?
1) Can they be colored? I don't see any such options in the properties.
2) Can the text be aligned left and right? I want to put a picture on a button and I don't want it to go on top of the text, which seems to be the only option.
In Internet Explorer, if you put your cursor over the Back button or the stop button, refresh, home, etc buttons, you'll see that the buttons go from just a picture to a 3-d command button. Does anyone understand that? if so, how can you make command buttons do that in VB?
How do I make a command button once click go to the next form without a new window appearing. Example I have a command button on form3 and I want the button to go to form4 but I dont want another window to appear and I want form3 to disappear once the command button is clicked. Like when you making a homepage or website.
I have a command button on my main form (used to exit the project). Occasionally you need to click on this button twice before it actually works. It seems to happen after I have loaded and unloaded another form. Its like it needs some sort of gotfocus event or something before it recognizes its been clicked on. I have also linked it to a function key through the menu, but you also have to press the function key twice before it works as well.
I am using Sheridan threeD buttons if that helps.
any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks
