     Many have asked for it & you'll see why this took so long to update/repost. Version 2 now allows 100% customization of the standard rectangle window. Over 100 properties/methods to choose from. And if you don't like the wide range of available options, the project is built to route drawing requests to your callbacks. This project is almost 7,000 lines of code & half again that much in comments. It has been tested well on 2K & 98, but project is so large I may not have caught potential bugs in all possible scenarios of options and settings. Kinda hoping you all will help there. Please let me know of any bugs found. Wow, this one was tough !!! Oh yeah, almost forgot. The project is a group, unzip using the option to Use Folders & open the .vbg file. Last Update: 12 Oct/20:25est. Fixed bug in NT4 where menus were not being read. Compiled hlp file now included. 25 Nov/17:10est. Fixed bug related to ActiveX controls; tooltips didn't display when compiled; minor patches & updated help file to include the help contents portion too. See iCoreMessages for complete update history.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
