keep button focused

Hi experts

I am building a form where i have buttons and a combo - box, when i select a value in the combo - box i want the size of the selected button to change, the problem i have is that the button loses focus when i select a value in the combo - box and so the program does not know what button to alter, please help.

Only one control can have the focus at any one time.
Assuming I understand you correctly (and it sounds very odd what you want) - you need to somehow keep track of which button has last had the focus when the focus changes to another control in your form.  Controls have a Leave event - you could use this to keep track of the most recently used button.
