Using color and flashing in a text label

Hi,

I remember the good old days of DOS (Disk Operating System for you youngsters) when changing the color or the flashing state was something you did with every pixel you drew.  But somehow in VS2003 there is no obvious way to do this.

Can anyone suggest how I can easily do this?  Doesn't anybody have "custom control" with these capabilities embedded in the object?

Would an upgrade to VS2005 help?

Thanks,
Bob

Actually, I just discovered how ieasy it is to change the color.  But I'd still like to learn how to make text flash as well.

Hi ba272,
----------

i think you can do the flash part with a timer, just changing background and foreground colors in the timer event
