Friday, February 21, 2003 3:27 PMHello!
I am looking for a custom radiobutton control and a custom checkbox
control for my application. The primary feature I am looking for is the
ability to manipulate the color of the checkmark within the checkbox and
the color of the dot within the radiobutton. Has anyone seen controls
like this available? If so, where?
Or, using the standard controls in VS.Net, can the color of the check and
dot be manipulated through code somehow?

Some caveats, I didn't test these with large fonts and I didn't test them with Windows XP visual styles. Also, since I am essentially just painting over the default check after the standard painting, its possible to get the control in a state where the new colored check is painted over the text.

help. I will check out the code to to see how you were able to do this.
