    Change Color of a Command Button when Receives Focus?


    I have command buttons that receive focus based on a Tab Order. Right now it is difficult to tell that cursor has “landed” on the button. I checked the Properties list, but could not see anything that was specific to color selection. Is there a way to change the color of the button when it receives the focus (or some other event)?

    I’m working with command buttons as text (not as pictures). I was able to use the following code that works when both tabbing onto the button and clicking the button with the mouse pointer.

    Private Sub GoToTab3_GotFocus()
    GoToTab3.FontSize = 9
    GoToTab3.FontBold = True
    GoToTab3.ForeColor = vbRed
    End Sub


    Private Sub GoToTab3_LostFocus()
    GoToTab3.FontSize = 10
    GoToTab3.FontBold = False
    GoToTab3.ForeColor = vbBlack
    End Sub
