Caption Gradiator III / VB6 Form Gradient Titlebar
Caption Gradiator III is a Basic Module that facilitates a custom gradient color titlebar for Visual Basic forms. The original program came from another VB author's web sight. The code was bloated and had several bugs including the failure to repaint area around the form control box buttons. The original author's approach to fixing the bugs was to tie the process to a sub class timer thereby increasing the bloat. My approach was to use better logic and less code. I learned from the original code as opposed to copying the code. The changes I made were significant and I have no problem with calling this my own program. The process is called from the Form_Load event and cancelled in the Form_Unload event as illustrated in the form code in the project.
