    Re: How to color menu bar not menu items of Mdi form in vb 6.0 ?

    Firstly, The colours and sizes of menu bars are System-wide settings, chosen by the User to suit themselves, often for very Good Reasons, like colour-blindness. Don't change them without warning, or expect to get your application to be returned, uninstalled, for a refund.

    Secondly, trying to second-guess the way that MDI works is almost always a waste of time; a battle you will lose. If it meets your needs, then use it, just as it comes. If it doesn't do what you want, then try a different User interface paradigm.

    Regards, Phill W.

    Firstly, Welcome to the Visual Basic 6.0 and Earlier Forum!

    Secondly, as you posted two links, one to this forum, and one to the VB.NET forum, it raises the question what product you are using. If you have Visual Basic 6.0 (or earlier) (Includes Visual Studio 6.0), then you SHOULD ask your questions here. If you are using another brand of Microsoft Products, like one of the many Visual Basic.Net products (like Visual Studio 2008 or newer, for example), then post your questions in the other .NET part of this forum.

    Regards, Sam B.

    Personally not a big fan of customizing the non-client area of standard forms; I prefer to use the current window theme. But, to better answer your questions, maybe you can post an image of what you are expecting? Maybe screen capture your form into MS Paint and color the menubar the way you would like your form to appear?

    I just tested your link http://leandroascierto.com/blog/hook-menu/ and it loaded fine and I was able to download HookMenu 1.4. Like you I use Chrome as my browser. Why not try the link in Internet Explorer and see if it works then. Of course it may be your AntiVirus preventing you seeing it.
