taking out the edges of a speedbutton

I'm using a group of speedbuttons and i want the selected button to stay FLAT even on its selected state (down = true).  Is there a way to take out the edges of the speedbutton (highlight and shadow) whatever its state may be?

Hi
i dont think this is possible without re-writing the speedbutton.
maybe better look at www.torry.ru etc for a different button that already has no bevels/edges..you could use panels but not very resouce friendly .

ahh i find one that does this:
it is called bi_lib and has a few different neat components of which one called  BI_Button is same as speed button and when set to flat it takes away the borders/edges,it also comes with source if you want to see how they do it :

more info:
TBI_Button: An IE / Office 97 button, with accelerator char support, dropdown menus, grayed glyphs etc.
TBI_PlasmaButton: like TBI_Button, but filled with a plasma fractal.
TBI_GradientButton: like TBI_Button, but with a gradient inside. On 256 color systems, the gradient can either be painted dithered or be disabled.
TBI_ImageButton: like TBI_Button, but with 3 images for up state, mouseover state and down state. Images can be transparent.
TBI_TorryButton: a button like on Torry's Delphi Pages :-)
TWebgauge: A gauge with a "waiting" state like in Navigator 4.0
TBI_loupe: A loupe component that shows a magnified view of everything beneath the mouse cursor.
TBI_Memo: A bitmap filled memo! Supports Office 97-like flat border.
TBI_Edit: like TBI_Memo, but replaces TEdit.
TCaptionButton: A button for the title bar! With glyph support, hints etc.
plus: TBI_Arrow, TBI_Bevel and more....
