simple(?) listbox question

On one of my forms, I have a few dropdown lists and a listbox.
The problem is that it is very difficult to tell when the
listbox has focus -- the light blue selection bar seems to
have a dashed white border around it, which is not much
different from the solid light blue border which is drawn
when one of the dropdowns has focus.  I'd like to change
the border color to black.  Can it be done?  Easily?  :-)

Hello Bob,

There are several ways of indicating a focus -
1. You can set different colors for actve/inactive
2. You can change fonts for actve/inactive
3. You can set 3d effect for listbox that has focus

All of them can be done easily

Hope it helps,
Pawel
