    I cannot recall name of it, but a few years ago I've seen an ActiveX control,
    that would let you "shape" forms and buttons. I'm not exactly sure if it
    lets you create your own shape or just to select from the list. I would search
    VBExtra's for "SHAPE". Good luck.

    At the least, you'll need to describe the shape using coordinates. If you can do
    that, see either WinRgn.zip or PolyBtn.zip on my site.

    Could it have been AgTransForm from http://www.agendumsoftware.com ?

    I use it and it is the easiest way I have found to do what was requested.
