Default Color change possability?

Hi, I havent coded in VB for a while and am not sure if this was possible or not.

Is there a way to change partial letters in a label, without having multiple labels?.

For those of you who do html, Im asking about something like this:

<td style="color#000000;">
Hi this is <span style="color:#FF0000;">Rolandatem!</span>

I just want to have ONE label where some areas are different colored.

Unless a third-party add-in can do that, Access does not allow for multicolored labels. My suggestion is create one using another program that allows it, turn that into an image (e.g. JPG), and then import that image into your form.

instead of using a label, grab the OnPaint event and use multiple Me.Print statements setting me.forecolor

Me.currentx = set the left postion
me.currenty = set the top position
me.forecolor = vbblack
me.print "this is black "
me.forecolor = vbred
me.print = "this is red"
