    Change Color Of Labels As Mouse Moves (Using MouseOver event)

    I have created an user form which has a frame. The frame contains several labels. My objective is to highlight the label when mouse points to that label but highlight should disappear once mouse moves to next label and the next label should be highlighted.

    Following is my code:

    Code is my user form:
    Dim Labels() As New LblClass
        Dim LabelCount          As Long
        Dim ctl                 As Control
        ' Create the Label objects
        LabelCount = 0
        For Each ctl In Frame1.Controls
           If TypeName(ctl) = "Label" Then
              LabelCount = LabelCount + 1
              ReDim Preserve Labels(1 To LabelCount)
              Set Labels(LabelCount).LabelGroup = ctl
           End If
        Next ctl
    Created a class called LblClass and this class has following code:
    Public WithEvents LabelGroup As MSForms.Label
    Private Sub LabelGroup_MouseMove(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
       LabelGroup.ForeColor = vbWhite
       LabelGroup.SpecialEffect = 1
       LabelGroup.BackStyle = 1
       LabelGroup.BackColor = &H808000
    End Sub

    With above code, when mouse moves over a label it is highlighted. Next when mouse moves over a new label, new label is highlighted and old label is still highlighted. This continues. How can I remove the highlight from my previous label when mouse moves over new label.

    Could you supply a file with this as you currently have it - save us having to setup our own files and guess (wrongly) what's in yours?

    If I've helped and you can't be bothered to acknowledge it, I can't be bothered to look at further posts from you.

    I had done something like that awhile ago, except I got carried away and did a number of different types of controls

    I needed to polish an application to make it stand out -- the highlighting is pretty much just eye candy since it really is only part of the UI

    I used the

    Private Sub UserForm_MouseMove(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
    event to 'clear' the highlight color

    The attached file has the idea. It's a little crude, but now that I've looked at it, I might play around some more
