     This usercontrol is a very interactive replacement for old VB shape control. Interactive just in IDE, the end user of an app gets the nice design only. But the programmer maybe gets the most interactive VB usercontrol ever ;-) ! Adjust gradient parameters, postions, designs directly on the screen, no need to use the property box for every single value. Thx to Carles P.V. we have fantastic gradients and thx to Lavolpe we have MANY fancy forms for modern screen designs. Anti-aliased circles, endless combinations of colors with shapes are inviting to play arround with. All put together in a selfcontained, ownerdrawn and documented usercontrol (without any subclassing or timers) by Light Templer. Enjoy ;-) _________ UPDATE 1: (1) Fixed the error raised when drop a new control error onto form with 'Break on all Errors' switch activated. (2) Added a VB5 "version" - Its totally the same control just stripped out the usercontrol property VB5 don't have (ClipBehavior). Sorry for just a simple demo form here. _________ UPDATE 2: Rebuild the demo form and added a 2nd (more serious) demo as requested. _________ UPDATE 3: Fixed the problem coming from german VB version (storage format of single var properties in .frm demo file) with a universal small function to get the value in all cases. _________ UPDATE 4: Finally got this strange error of don't working on some systems! A BIG sorry! Now it should be fine on every VB / SP version.
