Create Better Button Arrows

Many times developers use a form's default font arrow characters for To and From buttons between listboxes. To give your app a nicer, more solid look, do what Microsoft does-use the Marlett font, which is added by default to all Windows 95, 98, and NT4 and later installations.

Instead of giving a To button the caption ">," change the font to Marlett and type "3" for the Caption property. Instead of a From button being a skeletal "<," use Marlett and type "4" in the Caption property. For nice, solid Up and Down arrows, use Marlett "5" and "6."
