Mouseovers

In VB5 (though I imagine any version of VB is the same) - how can I change a property on
a mouseover event?  For example a label that has a caption in forecolor BLACK
will be changed to a caption with forecolor WHITE when the mouse is over it - and then
goes back to forecolor BLACK when the mouse leaves.

It is easy to change it to WHITE on a mousemove event and then set a flag to stop it
happening again - but what about changing it back when the mouse leaves.
I want about 10 of these to be used as 'menu buttons' (similar to a web page
with onmouseovers).  If I use mousemove on the 'containing form' and reset ALL labels to BLACK
I get a 'flutter' across all 10 labels - even if I set some flag to make sure it only happens once per
mousemove..... I want it to work like the dragover event.....
Maybe I should change to another language that has 'mouseover' and 'mouseleave' events.
