    I've seen the MSN Explorer chat window form and I like it's look. How can I get that look? I would like my forms to look like this. Any replies?

    What does it look like? Why not just make a form like it?

    Is there a form editor where I can change the look like for example, the minimize restore and exit buttons on the upper right?, those are considered icons? if so,how can they be changed,that's why I'm asking because I like that style the new MSN Explorer Instant Message chat window. Thanks

    one cool thing would be if the form was like a squigly line on the sides...

    You can use Images or Pictureboxes in place of the buttons.
    Code:
    Private Sub picMaximize_Click()
        WindowState = vbMaximized
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub picMinimize_Click()
        WindowState = vbMinimized
    End Sub
    
    Private Sub picClose_Click()
        Unload Me
    End Sub

    Actually, you can use this for your maximize code.
    Code:
    If WindowState = vbNormal Then
        WindowState = vbMaximized
    ElseIf WindowState = vbMaximized Then
        WindowState = vbNormal
    End If
