Change Border Color Of RTB?
I have a RichTextbox set to Border style FixedSingle.. I want to have a blue boarder around my richtextbox, but it is always gray.. How do you go about changing the border color of a RichTextBox?

Obviously this doesn't work:

RichTextBox1.bordercolor = Color.Blue

I have been googling for a while and haven't found anything useful yet...

How To Change Form Border Size
I have been trying to make my own borders for my form, which worked out but wast like I expected, (I used an image and Formborderstyle = none). I have looked at other applications(like Internet Explorer and Google Chrome) when they are not maximized, the top part of the form which you usually cant edit(where there you put your application's title and the control box is). I mean those top parts are larger than those of normal applications, how can that be done? To be clear: with top part i mean: the part that is part of your system, where an icon, a label with the application's title, and the control box is. To be more clear, see the screenshot provided.

Change Border Color Of A Textbox?
I want to change the border color of a textbox. I have tryed to override the onpaint event (setting userpaint to true), but in this case I must control all the painting events of a textbox. So, this isn't a good thing. This seems to work, but the user control has no text property. And I woult like to override the gotfocus and the lostfocus events.

Detect Mouse In User Control - Border Color Change?
I've got a couple of instances of a user control on a flowlayoutpanel. The user control has got a couple of controls on it, and very little / almost none of the control's original space is visible. I need to know when the mouse is inside the usercontrol. What then happens is that the border color changes (of a control in the user control), and when it leaves the control, it changes back to original state.

I tried the following:
Private Sub ctrDashboardWidgetFrame_MouseEnter(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseEnter
Catch ex As Exception
[Code] .....

And it works, but it only works when you move over the original visible space of the user control, and doesn'twork when you move over the child controls inside the user control. How I'll be able to achieve this to also work while the user is inside the full user control and not just it's visible space?

VS 2010 Textbox Border And Text Size Woes?
When changing a textbox border style to "none," and the font size to anything higher than the default 8.5, everything is fine unless if the letter goes downward ('g', 'y', 'j', etc). This is most noticeable with the g. I've linked a picture here, and I have no solution to have each character come out clearly. If I'm using another textbox border, it works fine. If I use the font size of 8.5, it's fine, but I can't have no border and a larger font. Though the textbox changes size it does not change enough to show the tail of the g. I can't change the size of the textbox because i
