What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.

A question is worth what the asker believes or is willing to give.

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
