Can anyone out there suggest and easy way to do the following (eg and a vb control for doing it):
Make a button (or icon) that when you hold your mouse over it changes (eg "pops out") and when you click it changes on the when the mouse button goes down and changes again when the mouse button goes up. Its hard to do this with only one click event.

How this is what you want. Set the command button's style to 1, and set the picture, dowpicture and disablepicture to the picture you want. You can change the picture and any time when you needed.

This is not quite what I wanted. I do not want any button in the background. I wanted to use this for animation type program where you see a "Map" and then you move your mouse around and when you move over an object eg. a house it "pops up" and when you click on the down strock it "pops down" and then when the mouse is let up it goes back to normal before following through to the form associated with the house.

To make this animated button, VB comes with several events including MouseUp, MouseDown, MouseOver and of course, Click.  It would also help to have an ImageList control for ease of use.  Then all you need to do is set the picture for the button every time one of the events is triggered like this:

Private Sub MouseOver
     Button.Picture = IL1.ListImages(1).Picture
End Sub

That should solve your problem.
