No longer updating this old project; just maintaining it. Latest patch (01Jun06) to fix bug in ReadProperties routine. Original description follows =====================
Updated: Added checkbox/option button modes to include the diagonal buttons (Mode/Value Properties). Also included a custom shaped button that takes shape from its picture property. Some notes to mention: 1) checkbox face color intentionally made to look lighter than normal button face when Value is True. XP, Java, & Mac are best guess as to what it would look like. 2) Option button selections toggle other option buttons, but do not synchronize with VB's option buttons. 3) No change to round buttons; short of using anti-aliasing, could not figure a way for smoother look--experimenting with GDI+. 4) If compiled in app, adds 110k. 5) If compiled as OCX, < 100k using P-Code & minimal app size increase; not bad considering the common dialog is 138k. 6) No timer control used. 7) Reorganized to help follow code easier. 8) Comments welcomed, votes are up to you. Project inspired by Gonchuki's Chameleon Buttons v1.x. Last Update Uploaded: 30 Oct 2004/1405 EST to fix font problem. Last update 23 Oct 2005 to include a separate OCX project.
