The Windows95 wall paper can be seen through the gap between the windows of VB5CCE...fine.
I have just installed the same VB5CCE in another PC but this time the Windows95 wall paper cannot be seen. What I can see is a big container of VB5CCE and the color of the container is the same as the dot lines when I resize the form by mouse :-(
So, how can I reset the color of the big container of VB5CCE or how to delete the container?

Thank you for your time.

Hi zsi

You are right, thank you very much.

And, you don't think I can change the color of the big container or the color of the dot lines (when resize or move the form by mouse)?

victor,

Let's call the "big container" the IDE.  And the dot lines, the "Grid". :)

That said, the backcolor of the IDE can be set in the control panel w/ the Application Background.

Hello zsi

>Let's call the "big container" the IDE.  And the dot lines, the "Grid". :)

I think therer are DIE, EDI, IED, DEI and EID :-) I just can not remember them! Can you tell me what is IDE?
The dot lines I memsioned aren't the grid lines. I was trying to tell you the lines: when drag the edge of a form by mouse to resize it, an empty rectangle (four lines) appears and is changing its size following the moving mouse to indicate what form size will be (confusing you??).

>That said, the backcolor of the IDE can be set in the control panel w/ the Application Background.

What is "w/"?

Cheers.

Sorry, Victor.  I forgot this is an international forum :)

IDE = interactive development environment.

I'm not sure that you can change the color of the selection rectangle.  It's color is determined by an XOR operation againt the color of the object being selected.  

"w/" is short for with.  So "w/ the application background" is actually "with the application background"
