> > Further to my Message ID: 395778, going through archives I can't help being amazed by some "simple tricks" in old postings - effective learning by examples ...eg. here is one from Yousfi Benameur back in 2011 for changing color of a check box. .. Am re-posting just in case any one has a need for it.

> It's an interesting trick, incidentally I can get it to work on my Win 7 workstation, without issue. I can set the tick box to be a different colour but then tabbing through or clicking on it reverts the colour so to make use of it you'd probably need to remember and repeatedly set the colour over and over again. I don't know whether it is anything I'd use in a production application but it is useful to see an outside the box solution to to something.

lol - right, I don't actually use it myself. I was just browsing through old files while reading the forum and thought it'd probably useful for someone :-) ... Found that I have quite a number of YB's old posts scattered around
