Is there anyway to have a background image to a listbox?  If there is no way, is there atleast any ActiveX for this?

Thanks

Hi srikanth,

You can get the desired result by subclassing Listboxes.

Kindly visit the URL

and you will find loads of articles dedicated to subclassing of List boxes.

I hope that would definitely help you.

Thanks

Hi Alok

I'm using VBA for MS Word.  In that i dont have the ".Handle" property for images/pictures.  Hence it doesn't work there.

Is there any other way? i.e. is there any other api or is there any other way to get the ".Handle" value of an image control in VBA?  I faced a similar problem in VBA: There is no ".hWnd" property for forms.  But there is an api thru which we can get that value.

Thanks
Srik
