As part of a team that creates a computer based skills assessment system which emulates current Windows packages I came across a non-standard spin button. I had to decide if I was going to create an accurate look for the assessment or take the easy way out and go with the standard control.
Creating buttons using picture boxes and bitmaps is pretty easy on the whole.
But as you will see from the bitmaps below and the fact that these are spin
buttons, the challenge got interesting.
After a little thought, a picture box, three image controls
and a little code, I was spinning values up and down
(a little simpler than I thought at first glance).
