Creating 3D Forms

Question:
I have been successfully using the CTL3DV2.DLL to make 3D message boxes and common dialogs, but I have not been able to get it to work with standard VB forms. I have been told that the VB form must have the border-style property set to fixed-double, and I have also turned off all title bar buttons. What is the problem?

Answer:
This particular method does not work for forms. It only works with MsgBox and CommonDialog calls. You have to use a control to do this for forms. Check ftp.cica.indiana.edu for such a control, or you can get X3D.ZIP from the VB Programmers Journal area on Compuserve.
