VB Express 2011, first click changes button color, 2nd reverts.

(OP)
Hello, i am trying to create a little program for a game i play. I want to be able to change the color of one button (the one you click on) i have the changebackcolor, but i would like it to change back if it is clicked again

an example to get the point across (does not work)

CODE

Private Sub btnengine1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnengine1.Click
        Me.btnengine1.BackColor = Color.Red
    if btnengine1.backcolor = color.red then
        me.btnengine1.backcolor = color.green
    end if

End Sub
so in short, i would like to click he button once, it changes the backcolor to red, if i click the button again, it will change it back to green, i would like to keep the code as short as possible as i have more than 26 buttons to do this to. thank you

RE: VB Express 2011, first click changes button color, 2nd reverts.

It looks like you are changing the color to red and then if it is red (which it will always be) change it to green. The code below initially checks to see what the color is and then changes it to the other.

Private Sub btnengine1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnengine1.Click
    if btnengine1.backcolor = color.red then
        me.btnengine1.backcolor = color.green
    else
        me.btnengine1.backcolor=color.red
    end if

End Sub

HTH, Dan
