Module: SimulatedControls in Category Microsoft Visual Basic 6 : Graphics from Total Visual SourceBook

Routines to draw simulated controls Visual Basic 6 (VB6).

Windows contains a function "DrawFrameControl" to create an image of several standard Windows "widgets" -- check boxes, menu items, scroll bar controls and so forth. The functions in this module expose this function to your application. You might want to use these simulated controls for several reasons. Perhaps you are creating documentation of the appearance of a form, and you wish to create a graphic you can display or print. You might be creating lightweight "graphical" user controls and wanting to draw the appearance of the controls on your user control rather than using an actual control. Because the controls are drawn by Windows, their appearance depends on the users' Windows color and font preferences.
