I wanted to use the check box control as a toggle button, but I also wanted to display text along with the bitmap.  I was able to do this in VB with the check box control, but ut seems the MFC's check box control doesn't allow text and graphic together. Is there a way around this, or another control to give me this capability.  I'm looking for a toggle button look, without having to have two bitmaps for each button to represent on/off.

RONSLOW,
This I can use - but I wanted this to be a toggle button.  That was my reason for using the check box.  Can I manipulate the command button to look toggled, easily?  I would like to see the code for the owner drawn.

Thanks,
Dawn

If you set it to owner drawn, then it is no longer a checkbox.

I assume by a toggle button you mean a'normal' looking button that can be pushed in (and stay in) or clicked again to stay out.

This is exactly what I was suggesting.

Can you give me your email adress (or send a mail to me) and I'll send you some code (it might be a bit lengthy to put in here).

Did you get the code that I emailed you?

Thanks again!
