    The only way I know of is to change the system settings so that all active window borders are set to the color of your choice. I don't think there is an easy way to do it, but you can see if someone here that knows how to subclass can do it.

    Add the attached class module to your project and you could use this code to change the color of the form's border

    Code:
    Option Explicit
    Dim cColors As New SystemColors
    Dim intPrevColor As Long
    
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    intPrevColor = cColors.ActiveBorder
    
    cColors.ActiveBorder = RGB(100, 100, 100)
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
    cColors.ActiveBorder = intPrevColor
    End Sub
    Hope it helps
