circular form control

P: n/a
Does any one know if there exists a form control that can function much like
a rectangle control but is circular (or 6 sided say)? Can I make a custom
control called circle that groups 6 instances of the line control and
functions exactly like the line control (props, events etc) . I think I can
do it with net but don't want to learn it, hopefully I can do it with access
or VBA

Please help steer me in the right direction

Thanks

much like a rectanagle

Perhaps you can create an circle icon & place that in an Image
control's Picture property. Then use the click events of the Image
control. You can also put an icon on a CommandButton.

Using the form's or control's MouseDown event you can determine where
on the form/control the mouse was clicked by examining the X & Y
parameters of the event procedure (numbers start from the top left
corner).

Place a command button over whatever you have drawn and set the Transparent
property.

At one time, Albert Kallal posted a way to do "shaped" forms, such as
circles, polygons, etc. It utilities the Win API. I don't have the URL any
more. Perhaps Albert would be so kind as to provide that info again?
