Is it possible to customize the colors in a dialogbar, something like
OnCtlColor in dialogs ?
I've never used CDialogBar for some time, but it seems to me that a control
is a control so OnCtrlColor should probably still work if you implement the
handler. Dialog bars just have controls.

...Paper output size question
I'm trying to set up a continuous feed printing system using an Okidata 9
pin printer on an XP system with Excel 2003.
The paper is an odd size. Between the tractor pins it is 9 inches, between
vert perfs its 8 3/8 inches. But its only 4 and a quarter inches between
horizontal perfs. After you tear off the edges, etc., you wind up with a
rectangular piece of paper 4 1/4 long by 8 3/8 wide. (which is exactly what
The problem is when I go to page setup, I can't find a place to tell it the
paper size. It has 5 pre-defined paper sizes, 8 1/2 by 11, A 5, A4, B5,
...Why does IE always open minimized windows when opening a new window?
When I minimize a window, to refer to later, and then open another
window, the minimized window opens to full screen for a few seconds
before the new window appears. Why can't IE not open a new window
without maximizing some other window at the same time?
Is there a solution to this problem?

System specs: Vista Business
Intel Core2Duocpu t5470

I was having problems seeing the fonts inside the windows and the icons
on the desk top. I customized the DPI to 144. This made the widows too
large. When I went back to the DPI page to change back to 96 DPI, I
couldn't reach the buttons on the bottom of the page to apply the
change. The other problem is that the task bar is too large. It covers
the bottom of the page. Again, I can't change it because I can't reach
the apply buttons on the bottom of the page. I need to make the changes

...Chart line colors
I create a few charts in code from VB.NET using the excel interops, office
2003. In my software I need to be able to set the color of the lines i.e.
the color of each series on the chart. There may be up to 9 series per
chart. How do I asign a color to the series lines on the chart?
Get out your version of Excel, make a chart like the one your code will
produce, then record a VBA macro while you change the series formats
manually. Then all that's left is to translate the VBA into VB.Net.

I have a problem with charts that are placed on seperate chartsheets within
my workbook. The chart-area is filled in different of yellow with a
fill-effect. No problems thus far. But now when I'm copying the chart to
word, the background-fill is reset to a black/white scheme instead of yellow.
Strange behaviour that didn't occur up till november 2008.
I've been researching this for a while. Up till now I found the following:
This only happens when the chart is on a seperate sheet, not when it is
positioned on a worksheet.
It only happens with fill-effects.

Not sure this is the right place to post this question; if not I'd
appreciate a link as to where to do it.
Problem (if it is a problem, well, for me it is a problem!) is that
when I'm on a page in IE 8 and click on something that opens in a
second window (like a news article), the second window is about 1/3
the size of the full window. I have to enlarge it to see the whole
article, video, or whatever. This gets a bit repetitive, and I'd
rather have the second window open to full size but can't figure out
if there's a setting to control it, and if so, which ...Windows is not currently managing your wireless network

...Answer to the most annoying problem of Windows 7
This message was posted here because:
1. I couldn't find any newsgroup on Microsoft Communities for Windows 7
(which I believe is an absolute must)
2. the program mentioned at the end would also work for Vista.
From day one of upgrading to Windows 7, I was faced with the unpleasant
reality that Win7 doesn't remember the size and position of folders. To
torture me, for some reason unknown to me, it began to restrict some
programs' windows--such as IE , Outlook, Chrome, and a few other--to a fixed
size and position, not allowing any change no matter how many times...Finding all instances of an ink color
I am ordering printing inks for my company. I am trying to set up a form
that will lookup all the same colors. For instance we might have 4
different 185C red inks for different substrates and each of the colors
could come from different vendors. This would give me up to 12
different 185C reds on my ink list. What I would like is a form that
would pull up each of the 12 different 185C's and its related info.
(Formula number, vendor, and price). I have tried vlookup but it only
finds the first instance of 185C red. Does anyone have any other
ideas?? Thanks in advance.

neat. However, when I installed AOL's Messenger, I

However, i set default back to Windows Messenger (through

Can you not use the 'format painter'? It's the paint brush icon on the

and not 'release' it until you click the button again, whereas a single
click only gives you a single operation

...Opening new calendar or contact window maximized (without Navigation Pane?)
I struggled for a long time to figure out how to open a new Calendar,
Task, or Contact window with the window maximized AND without the
Navigation Pane. I typically keep my main Outlook window set to show my
Inbox along with the Navigation Pane so I can see my mail folders. Then
if I want to see my calendar, I right-click on the "Calendar" button in
the Navigation Pane and select "Open in New Window". However, this can
be frustrating if the default window size is not set correctly and you
don't need the Navigation Pane in any new window.
