how to design a trackbar/slider with diff. look???

how to design a trackbar/slider with diff. look???

For my win-application I need a trackbar/slider,
that doesnt look like the control-trackbar offered
by vb.net. ; e.g. something like the slider in win-mediaplayer...,
but with my own design.
tried to change the look, and create something that
works like a slider,
but didnt find a solution yet

I use VB.Net 2002

I' m not 100% familiar with VB.Net yet, but also not a newbie anymore..
maybe somebody can help me?

Thanks

You can always create a user control that uses GDI+ and draw the
control by yourself, but remember that will take time and effort. Check
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.drawing or the Bob Powell's website
for good pointers about the whole GDI+ thing.

Jurgen,

Although the Trackbar inherits from the Control it relies on low level
CreateParams and Messages to actually draw the control not the OnPaint.

You could try writing your own control, but I'm sure that there is several
examples of this on www.codeproject.com
