Make the Ants March

To implement a quick and easy version of the old "marching ants" line around a control, place two CommandButtons, a Shape, and a Timer control on a form. Then insert this code into the form:
 
Private Sub Command1_Click()
	StartMarchingAnts
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
	StopMarchingAnts
End Sub

Private Sub StartMarchingAnts()
	Timer1.Interval = 200
	Timer1.Enabled = True
	Shape1.Visible = True
End Sub

Private Sub StopMarchingAnts()
	Timer1.Enabled = False
	Shape1.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
	If Shape1.BorderStyle = vbBSDot Then
		Shape1.BorderStyle = vbBSDashDot
	Else
		Shape1.BorderStyle = vbBSDot
	End If
End Sub
Pressing Command1 starts the animation; Command2 stops it. This works for all shape types.
