I have a form with some text on it and want it to change when the mouse moves over it. How do I know when the mouse is over the text? I want my text to change to a different font or maybe underlined when the mouse is over it (just like in web pages how the font changes or gets underlined).

If it is in a Label use

Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Label1.FontUnderline = True
End Sub

In a Textbox use

Private Sub Text1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Text1.FontUnderline = True
End Sub

To revert it use

Private Sub Form_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Text1.FontUnderline = False
'or Label1.FontUnderLine = False
End Sub

Did you put the text directly on the form with the form.print or did you place text into a label?  I would recommend a label for this so that you won't have to determine your mouse location.

Actually I tried the code with the label and it underlines the text but then it doesn't revert back to normal (not underlined) when the mouse is not over the text.

magnakuz,

You are not going to win many friends around here with that grading technique...  There was NOTHING in hes' answer to grade anything other than an "A".  His answer was fast and precise.  What more did you want?

It was a fair grade. He didn't tell me to use the form_mouseMove event to undo the underline...


form_mouseMove event to undo the text

Yes go to Community Support and place a 0 point question asking a moderator to change the grade. Place a link to this question number and they will change it for you.

I went there and was filling out a form, but there was no area where I could place a 0 point question. They were radio boxes of 25pts and higher. Thats it..
