    VB help needed - DVDplayer- Brushed metal

    Ive added the brushed metal (and this is still in the works btw) as the buttons in the DVDplayer that Froto modified. Since it is a darker background, I needed lighter text. I tried just using text on the backgrounds of the buttons, but didnt look right. So Im using a generic background and changing the text color. In Vb6, you cant change the text color properties.. or so Ive been told. I happen to find some code online that does allow me to change this color.

    The problem.
    When you change the style tp graphical - the caption text is no longer centered.
    When you compile and run the program, it overlays the caption text of the button,centered... but the original caption text is still at the bottom of the command button (see attached EXE). in black. So now.. it has duplicate text. If you remove the caption text, it doesnt put the new changed text because it pulls the info from the same location.

    I myself know very little about VB. If someone wants to help out.. Im sure us users of the Media Car Brushed metal skin would appreciate it
