For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.

I need to get 'Form1' to retain its black back-ground color while the 3 labels with a white BackColor displaying famous quotes are not visible (Form1 totally black) until a mouse pointer hovers over a label and reveals the famous quote(s) during the execution of runtime.
I followed the instructions that tells me to put three labels to the form each displaying a famous quote. When the program starts, the BackColor of the form and each of the 3 labels should be black. Now, as the user passes or hovers the mouse pointer over a label it should change the label's BackColor white thus revealing the quote. The results I get is not the same. That is, when the program starts the BackColor of the form is black, but the 3 labels do not have a black back ground at all. Instead, all the labels on the form are visible (showing quotes) with a white BackColor. Now, as I hover my mouse pointer over each label the back ground color of the form turns white and as I release the pointer from the label(s) the back ground color of the form returns to black.// The control settings in the properties window are: On Form1; BackColor = ControlText(black) & ForeColor = ControlText(black)// On Label1,Label2,Label3; BackColor = White & ForeColor = ControlText(black). In the Events window settings are:On Form1; Load = Form1_Load & MouseHover = Form1_Load// On Label1,Label2,Label3; MouseHover = Label1,2,3_MouseHover
Questions here need to have more detail than what you've written. At the least, share the ideas you have for this project: what is required to sense the mouse moving over a Control which is not visible ?
Hint: examine the Rectangle.Contains method.

“What was that?" Belgarath asked, coming back around the corner.
"Brill," Silk replied blandly, pulling his Murgo robe back on.
"Again?" Belgarath demanded with exasperation. "What was he doing this time?"
"Trying to fly, last time I saw him." Silk smirked.
The old man looked puzzled.
"He wasn't doing it very well," Silk added.
Belgarath shrugged. "Maybe it'll come to him in time."
"He doesn't really have all that much time." Silk glanced out over the edge.
From far below - terribly far below - there came a faint, muffled crash; then, after several seconds, another. "Does bouncing count?" Silk asked.
Belgarath made a wry face. "Not really."
"Then I'd say he didn't learn in time." Silk said blithely.”
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
Please explain! I noticed as I set the BackColor of the Labels white, and Form1 having a black BackColor; in runtime when I hover over a label, the whole back ground color of Form1 turns white. Now this is the problem, because the form is always suppose to stay black when the labels should be darkened (black) until the user hovers a mouse pointer over it to lighten it up - revealing the quotes. So, I changed the BackColor setting of the labels to black; now the whole form is Black, but as I Run the program and hover my mouse over a label nothing happens,i.e, the labels stays black as well as the form. How can I tweak this program to get the results required in runtime?
