How can I change the outline colour when a graphical options box is activated.

I am using an options button set as graphical with an image on the front. When the user presses the button I want the oltline to change to red to show that the button is in use. By default a fine grey line appears on the option when it is active. Is there any way I cann change this to red. I know I can use two image son e for down, but I have a lot os options and creating two images for each is time consuming if there is an easier way?

There is no easy way to change those colors. Only back and fore colors are changeable.
So I would consider drawing a new bitmap.

Thanks, I thought that might be the case, but before I spend hours making lits of bitmaps I thought I'd see if anyone had an easier solution.
