Can some one direct me to an example of how to do a gradient form?? I have searched far and wide and still have not come up with anything . Please help me!:stupid:

Hrm, "form". Visual tool term ;). What exactly do you want? The
type of gradient thingamajig used by installers? The logic behind
is simple. Create a big old window, chose a "from" and a "to" color,
and paint lines down your window, interpolating from the "from"
value to the "to" value. The code is a little more complicated than
the theory because you'll be dealing with RGB values. You should
use the boards "search" feature, there was a discussion about this
some time ago, with nice code... or was it on the old board? I think
I saved the code somewhere anyway.

In WinXP or OfficeXP, you could use GDI+ - gradient methods built in. :) I'll send you the code for the manual (psuedo API-less) technique.

Noooooo, not GDI+! It's evil! EVIL! And slow. And wraps around
normal GDI. Please use bitrake's manual code, not GDI+!

They are certainly two extremes, and I can testify to the molassas like interfaces that GDI+ creates. :)

Oh boy, did my post-finger itch... couldn't resist... had to do it...
This is my post #800. Bring out the champagne bottles! See if you
can beat me to #1000, bitrake :P.

(It's fun how much fun you can have when you've spent multiple
hours writing crypto code. Not that the crypt code isn't fun to write,
but... obscure errors... bugs... lalala).

Yeah, f0dder did the same thing with custom compression algorithms - fun, but surely sensitive coding. :) Post counts will come in time - I'm not in a hurry. Any reason to toast is a good reason! No champagne, just a nice ale.
