choose color dialog

P: n/a
ARC
Hello all,

In my access 2007 app, I'm using the code for fonts/colors that I believe I
found years ago on the accessweb.net site. Problem is, calling the color
picker is opening the very old style color chooser (looks to be the access
97 color palette and style). How do you get the 'choose color' function to
open the more modern / access 2007 color picker and dialog style? Here's the
declare function:

Private Declare Function ChooseColor _
Lib "comdlg32.dll" Alias "ChooseColorA" _
(pChoosecolor As COLORSTRUC) As Long

I checked out the file date of comdlg32.dll and it's in May 2008, Version
6.0.6000..., so no problem there I think. Is there maybe something to change
in the above declare function line that will launch the more modern color
picker?

Thanks!

Andy
