ActiveX Controls Display Issue?

All,
I am starting out learning vba/vbe, but I am having problems controlling the 
ActiveX control objects.   When I insert buttons and boxes from the forms 
toolbar, they work fine (except they don't have the same capabilities as 
ActiveX controls), when I insert ActiveX controls, I am getting wierd font 
behavior.  When the object is selected, the text in the object looks fine.  
But when I select a worksheet cell or another object, the font goes wierd.  
Each letter in the text appears to get wider, so they run into eachother and 
look weird.  As the users selects different buttons, the text changes every 
time.  The problem seems to be limited to only my laptop, my desktop works 
ok.  To show what this looks like I posted a screen dump here showing excel 
running objects on both my laptop and my desktop:

Does anyone know what this is or how to fix it?
Thanks,

Activex #6
hi to all, i'm beginner in vc++,i don't know how to start activex in vc+ +.anyone help me from where i have to start studying. Thanks and Regards Muthukkumaran.S.A To begin with, why do you want ActiveX? Its older technology but it still has its usefulness. You want to make sure you really want it before jumping into it. MFC is older technology for ActiveX and it produces a larger module. ATL has smaller footprint and is the preferred choice. For tutorials, go to MSDN and codeguru/codeproject. -- Ajay <arumuthu@gmail.com> wrote in message news:f1bb07cb-4afe-4efb-9...

Windows 7 (7600) with xbox 360 connected via VGA cable display issues
There are a number of posts online relating to issues switching resolutions when using an xbox 360 connected to a HD TV using the VGA connector. I have Windows 7 build 7600, the latest Microsoft xbox 360 upgrades and a 100Mb connection between my PC and the xbox. My desktop is running 1680x1050 and my Xbox at 1920x1080 via the VGA cable.

Show tabs with data in Tab Control
I have a form with a tab control and several tabs. On each tab I am using a subform. Users will not always have data in the subforms of each tab. My question is can I somehow show them which tabs have data, so that they are not forced to click through all tabs to find where their data is? I have tried using the OnChange event of the tab control to check for data and then add an asterisk to the caption of the tab if there is data. But that causes some nasty flicker when switching from tab to tab. I would like to know if anyone has come up with a more elegent way of showing customizing t...

Dealing with a 32bit color display
Hi, I build my app using a high end vga true color machine, and made all the forms have the office 2007 blue effect on them.

Waiting for domain controller while on foreign nets

Enable Cursor movement control in POS item entry
Please consider adding a configuration Control option in POS so during item entry it would stop on quantity or price instead of advancing to the next line. Our customer have just upgraded from QS2000 and had this option in the QS2000 and was very unhappy that this feature was taken out of RMS. It seems, that in an environment where items are scanned and the price and quantity are fixed it would make sense to have the cursor advance to the next line item, but in many environment price override and quantity entry now require the user to go back to the line above to make the changes.
