Hello murbro,

this is not meant to answer your question but it seems related to the other one about the color dialog, maybe it would be interesting to look at the open xml format behind excel xmlss it exposes all the properties of normal excel workbooks

for a sample you could download this project > http://www.codeproject.com/vb/net/xmlsscp.asp

just as a backgrounder

You can recreate the dialog, by using something as simple as Micro$oft Paint, and copying/pasting/selecting, and then save the images into a .gif file.

Hi Bob

Would you be able to elaborate on that a bit. To create a button like one in the Border tab, I need a picture of that.
How would I get that.

Thanks

1) Open Excel
2) Show the Border tab
3) Press the <PrtScn> button to copy the screen to clipboard
4) Open Paint
5) Paste the image into Paint
6) Select the region that has the picture that you want to use
7) Copy that region
8) Paste into a new image
9) Resize the image using the sizing handles
10) Save the file as a .gif
