How to color command buttons in VB5

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?
