Slowly change colors of a label

Hi, how would I possibly take a label with the text color being white and slowly fade it to be red text when the user moves the mouse over it?  If at all possible, I would like to do it without using a timer.  Thanks.

Without a timer it becomes much more difficult, and ultimately it needs a timing mechanism to control the rate of progress.

I'd recommend this:

Add a timer, Timer1, with interval=100 and enabled=false, then add this code:

Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
  If Not Timer1.Enabled Then
    Label1.BackColor = vbWhite
    Timer1.Enabled = True
  End If
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
  Dim lCurrentColor As Long
  lCurrentColor = Label1.BackColor
  lCurrentColor = lCurrentColor - CLng(8 * CLng(256 ^ 2)) - CLng(8 * 256)
  If lCurrentColor <= 0 Then
    Timer1.Enabled = False
    Label1.BackColor = vbRed
  Else
    Label1.BackColor = lCurrentColor
  End If
End Sub

How about changing the lable to a graphic that you replace with an animated GIF when you detect mouse over?
