Treeview Scrollbar Color (or Custom Scrollbar)
i am wondering how (if it is possible) to change the color af the scroll bar from a treeview. i have a fully skinnable program and everything can be changed (background and text color of the treeview too) but those scroll bars are damn ugly with a black skin. Is there either a way to change the color or to create a custom scrollbar for the treeview?

Scrollbar Color
some weeks back i found in the forum a thread where someone wanted to have the scrollbar of a treeview in another color. as this was not possible his was gaven the advice to replace the scrollbar of the treeview with a custom scrollbar and change its' color.
well i don't need it for a treeview but anyways i cannot find a scrollbar with a 'color' property. (there are two kinds of scrollbars - the standard one and the FlatScrollBar but neither of them has a color or backcolor property)
any idea?

Scrollbar Color
Maybe this belongs in the API forum I don't know... but here it is anyway. How can I changed the color of the scrollbar? It is just a regular vertical scrollbar and I want to change the back color (that is what I am calling it) which is white by default to light gray... similar to the scrollbars on an mdi form.

Thanks

Color Of The Scrollbar In A Listview

Changing Scrollbar Color
How can I change the color of the scrollbar in my program?

I created a program that loads a list of RTF and displays it one at a time. I created an option that the user can change the color of the program whatever color he/she likes (as long as the color is in the list). I already done it, the color of the frame, menu bar, and RTF change but I don't know how to change the color of the scrollbar.

Note: The scrollbar only appears when the text in RTF is too long. What I mean is, the scrollbar option of the RTF is enabled (vertical scrollbar only).

When One Scrollbar Moves, The Other Scrollbar Should Move Simultaneously
Hi,

I have two textboxes, text1 and text2. They both have vertical scrollbars. The textboxes are the exact same width and height. I want these scrollbars to be linked: whenever the scrollbar of text1 is moved, it will automatically move the scroll bar of text2, and vice versa, to the exact same distance.

Any idea how I can do this?

Thanks for any help.

Linking My Customized Scrollbar To The Richtextbox Scrollbar?

So, can anyone help? how can i access and change the richtextbox scroll value? is it even possible?

Hooking My Scrollbar To A Scrollbar-less Listbox
I know there's a way to do this, but I can't find the code for it.

My scrollbar has a variable for percent, if that is needed. I want it to be able to have the user scroll my scrollbar and the listbox scrolls down. Any suggestions?

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.
Thanks!

VB Excel Changing Color Of Cell Lettering Color When Out Of Range
Hi all,

On another question, is there any good Visual Basic example of how to draw a chart without having the program crash during the second time? Thanks in advance.

Changing An Ojbects Color...required For Color Blind Individuals
There are certain objects such as the tab control and the slider control that have a fixed gray color.  I am trying to find an API function that will allow me to change the color of controls that do not have an associated property such as backcolor to do this. The Tab control has a backcolor but it does not effect the color of the tabs and the slider control does not have a backcolor property at all.

Display High Color Graphics On Low Color App Server
I have put up with this problem for a very long time and now I just can't stand it anymore because it limits the graphical design of my apps. I've read some similar posts on this forum, but none seem to be exactly what I'm experiencing. So here goes...

Most of my apps currently have a gray background on ALL objects because that is one of the colors that can be displayed correctly on our app server which I think is set to 256 colors. My machine is set to "High Color 16 Bit". When I add our company logo or any kind of image to an object and run it on our app server, it loses its depth and ends up displaying the image in very basic colors. Recently, we installed a 3rd party app (I think it was written in some kind of visual cobol) and I noticed that the graphics in this app look very rich. (Which ticks me off!)

Is there a way that I can display "High Color" on a "Low Color" setting? There must be.

I've attached two samples for comparison. Hopefully you can see the difference. They are screenshots from my PC and from our app server.

Thanks in advance!

256 Color Palette And Loss Of Color Gradient On Icons
I made some icons that have 256 color gradients on them. Using the toolbar and imagelist controls, I loaded the icons into the toolbar. The first time I ran the code, the icons looked fine. However, during the second run and after, the color gradients were not visible in the icons, and the colors degenerated to something like 16 colors.

How can I turn on 256 colors in VB? My monitor is already 256 since I can see the color gradients on the original icons.

Set Color Before Showing 'select Color' Dialog.
Hey.

I'm using the CommonDialog control's 'ShowColor' method to let the user select a color for something.

The dialog fires when the user clicks a picturebox that has it's backcolor property set to the last color the user selected.

Basically, the picturebox shows the color the user selected, and when the user clicks the picturebox again he can choose a new color, and the picturebox color will update.

One thing is not working though. I want the dialog to 'default' to the color of the picturebox before opening.
Now it's just always black.

I tried this, which seemed the right way to go... but it doesn't seem to work:

Code:
Private Sub picCol_Click(Index As Integer)
With dlgColor
.DialogTitle = "Select Color"
.Color = picCol(Index).BackColor 'color set here, before showing dialog
.ShowColor
picCol(Index).BackColor = .Color
End With
End Sub


picCol() is (one of the) pictureboxes (control array) and dlgColor is the commondialog control.

The only way I could think of why this would not work is that maybe the .Color 'format' is different then the .BackColor format.
But that is out of the question because I set the .BackColor property to the .Color property just moments later, and that seems to work perfectly...

Does this simply not work? :S

Changing Back Color Or Font Color Of DTP
hi folks,
I have a DTP whose value is being populated from Access 2003 database. I require that if the year value is less than 1951 then it should have a backgroundcolor as vbred or atleast the font displayed should change to vbred. I tried the below code line in change & click event of DTP but to no effect. I did not use both codes together or use the codes in both the events simultaneously.

VB Code:
If Year(Me.dtp1.Value) <= 1950 Then Me.dtp1.CalendarForeColor = vbRedIf Year(Me.dtp1.Value) <= 1950 Then Me.dtp1.CalendarBackColor = vbred


could somebody help me.

Text Color Is Not The Color Of Pen Using DrawText Function?
This is a method of a class I created.

When I run this method the text color is the ForeColor of the control or form, yet the rectangle border is the color of the Pen. I'd like the text color to be the color of the pen. What am I not doing or doing wrong. Is there a way to do this using the hDC of a control or form.

Code:
Public Sub Draw(hDC As Long, X1 As Long, Y1 As Long, X2 As Long, Y2 As Long)

    Dim hOldPen As Long
    Dim hOldBrush As Long
    Dim hPen As Long
    Dim hBrush As Long
    
    hPen = CreatePen(PS_SOLID, 1, ForeColor)
    hBrush = CreateSolidBrush(FillColor)
    
    hOldPen = SelectObject(hDC, hPen)
    hOldBrush = SelectObject(hDC, hBrush)
    
    With mvarRect
        .Left = X1
        .Top = Y1
        .Right = X2
        .Bottom = Y2
    End With

    Rectangle hDC, X1, Y1, X2, Y2
    DrawText hDC, mvarValue, Len(mvarValue), mvarRect, DT_SINGLELINE Or DT_CENTER Or DT_VCENTER
    
    DeleteObject SelectObject(hDC, hOldPen)
    DeleteObject SelectObject(hDC, hOldBrush)

End Sub
