This sample is a great starting point for a custom control. What this source code shows is how to use various shape controls and pictureboxes to create a custom frame container that has the ability to use rounded corners.
This code is well commented. Most of this code can be easily migrated to an ActiveX control. See the screenshot for an example of its appearance.

out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner
If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Scott, you missed the point. What it does is what is important, not how it does it. Sure, it could be done other ways, but the time spent would not be worth it. How would you have thought of it if it was just an ocx and did not know how it worked? The whole point of developing objects (I have made an ocx out of this), is to reuse objects and use other objects together to provide a functionality that none of them have on their own.
To you it might be "just showing/hiding a buch of picture boxes.", but it is also something different and unique. How many end users are going to see the source code if you use it in a project? And better yet... Why would they care? (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I love it!! I'd like to make this into an ocx for use in future apps, but I have no knowledge of how to make this work. I'll fool around with it, but if anyone out there can do so, could you either post on here or e-mail it to me? I'd appreciate it.
The code rocks, man! Keep up the good work! (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
anyone made this into an OCX yet.If so post where to get it. Thanks great code (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
