Sometimes you have a Form that has a few Command Buttons but you don't want to have an actual button showing.  While you could just use the Background Hover Color, here's another way to show Users where the mouse is.

This Function will allow a bullet to show to the left of the control the mouse is hovering over.
The difficult I do immediately, the impossible takes a little bit longer.
Function fMouseOverCurrent(str As String)
On Error Resume Next
    If str = "None" Then
        Me.imgBullet.Visible = False
        Me.imgBullet.Visible = True
        Me.imgBullet.Top = Me(str).Top
        Me.imgBullet.Left = Me(str).Left - 220 'Twips
    End If
End Function
