    Changing button image in toolbar causes text to change

    I've been assigned a VB6 issue that I can't recreate locally. A handful of clients are reporting that the text on their Toolbar buttons changes randomly. Below is a video one of the clients sent, illustrating the issue:

    If you notice the exclamation mark icon, it's changing color as the button text changes. There's a timer in the app which changes the button's image. I suspect this is somehow linked to the issue, but an stymied as to why.

    Here's the code behind the timer:

    Select Case tblMain.Buttons("UserLog").Image
      Case "UserLogOn"
        tblMain.Buttons("UserLog").Image = "UserLogOff"
      Case "UserLogOff"
        tblMain.Buttons("UserLog").Image = "UserLogOn"
    End Select
    tmrUserLog.Interval = 1000
    The timer is named tmrUserLog. It gets enabled when theirs a message for the user.

    Like I said, I'm stumped. Why would the text be changing on the buttons, and why for just a few users?
    Thanks for any feedback!

    Re: Changing button image in toolbar causes text to change

    Apparently I do not have the plugin installed to view the embedded video

    The first things that come to mind though would be
    Color depth settings of the PC in question
    Video Card/Drivers

    If you aren't changing the value of the FUNCTION, then the video driver is probably confused. Change CASE to whatever each time...
