     Updated! Very nice command button (ActiveX control) with gradient filling. If client screen color depth is 256 colors or less ľ looks as regular command button. You can change caption-image order (position) from left to right or top to bottom. When created this control - used two algorithms from www.planet-source-code.com. Want to say personal thank you to: Rocky Clark (Gradient filter algorithm); Manuel Augusto Santos (Emboss filter algorithm). Please rate it! E-mail bugs to SergeyO70@HotMail.com. Feel free to use this control in your application (if you'd like to) as much as you want. If you'll modify it - please leave my name in the About box! Enjoy! PS: (Please rate it)
