Simple question.   In a UserForm created by VBA, I'd like to turn off the 3d look of a CommandButton.  The ComboBox control, for example, has the SpecialEffect property where I can change the default sunken to plain.  I don't see any such control over the look of a CommandButton.  I am going for the look on the right below.   Can anybody help?  Thanks!

the Shadow property of ComboBox control is the switch to enable to disable the 3D-look you mentioned.

Pretty sure the command button does not have properties to turn off 3D.

Maybe you could use something else?

For example a label (difficult to center text) or maybe a combination of a label and empty image. I'm sure you can work out other combinations.

Yep, I've toyed with using a label as a button, and seen the workaround of layering 2 layers on top of each other to produce vertically centered wording.  Was hoping to avoid that.  I may just tell my designer this is a case where function is going to win out over form.  

Thanks
