One of my old posts has generated some interesting requests in the form of comments. In most cases, here was the latest, though I think it's a prank from my local MVP, Miguel Castro...Congrats on the MVP award, dude....and here's my suggestion

Recieved via comments...

“Can you tell me how I can display a bitmap image inside the actual checkbox, change the color through a transition effect when the checkbox state changes, and make the image automatically dim or brighten according to the lunar cycles?

I need this urgently!!! Please help!!!! I'm dying here!!!!

THANK YOU!!!!

Here are some suggestions...anyone else have ideas on this?

1) display a bitmap image inside the actual checkbox.
    Use an image instead of a checkbox control, then use javascript to toggle between versions of the image representing checked and unchecked states. You'll also need to track the the checked/unchecked state and raise events appropriately. A hidden checkbox used in tandem with your images might work well.

2)Change the color through a transition effect when the checkbox state changes.
    Use animated gifs for your “checkbox images”. you could fade the checkmark in and out as well!

3)automatically dim or brighten according to the lunar cycles.
   You would need  a different set of images matching each lunar cycle. Check out http://www.intellexcorp.com/intellex/4DMessages/100/198.html for some info on algorithms that calculate lunar phases.
