Do you mean that you want to display each letter in a different colour ??

In that case, you'd probably have to use the Rich-Text edit box.

This might be useful.

Dim nRed As Integer, nGreen As Integer, nBlue As Integer
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
Randomize
nRed = 255 * Rnd
nBlue = 255 * Rnd
nGreen = 255 * Rnd
Text1.ForeColor = RGB(nRed, nGreen, nBlue)
End Sub
