Before I formated my hard drive awhile back i had a file that i put in my proggies directory to change all the buttons to look like xp, given the fact that you are using xp. I can't remember the site and cant find it searching for it. If you know the site or a way to do this please tell me.

Sorry, I should have edited my post after i figured it out. I found on the MS site how to do it.. I needed to add some come to my app:



Private Declare Function InitCommonControls Lib "Comctl32.dll" () As Long

Private Sub Form_Initialize()
Dim x As Long
x = InitCommonControls
End Sub



But, now there are black borders around the button. Any Idea how to fix that?
