You cannot as such change the shape of a command button. The best method of doing this is to create a picture box or image control on the form with a bitmap representing the shape of your button. You can then load an Up and Down bitmap as appropriate to simulate the pressing of the "button". The picture box control has most of the same events as a standard button and it can be a very effective way of having a non-standard shape button.

Many people find the thought of designing their own ActiveX
controls perhaps daunting but a command button is probably the best one to start with. As you progress you will not be so reliant on other 3rd party controls.
With ActiveX controls if you familiar with Classes
ie Property LET/GET, you are half way there. My point here is to step out and give them a try..you'll be suprised how easy they are in VB !!!

Good Luck
