     Ever want to change the textbox, listbox, and other common control border colors to something besides grayscale? The attached is one solution using Paul Caton's safe subclassing technique. The project was started for someone else that couldn't use it as is, so I posted it per his recommendation. It has limitations, but might be something worth playing with or maybe even using. Added & tested a few more controls, cleaned up remarks/unused code.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. 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 including:McAfee.com
