If I click on a command button in VB5 in developer mode, I get a list of attributes I can change.
One of the attributes is "backcolor" and it has a little square to show the color selected so far. I change that to RED via palette.
Another is "maskcolor" and I change it's little square to RED also
Finally there is "UseMaskColor" which I set to TRUE.
All this is an apparent waste of time. Nothing changes in the command button.
1) Why do these attributes exist?
2) How can I color my command buttons?
