You need to save all UI controls settings in .settings file (which is located on the server) and on FormLoad read these settings. so when client opens its form it first goes to read UI settings (the color of button, the size of form, etc) this would be a solution.

hi- are you saying like if something happens on 1 computer that causes button1 to go from green to red on the other 4 computers you want the button to go from green to red?

i would suggest creating a record in the database that has the button color for each of the buttons. then have a timer that gets that value ever 10 seconds or so. whatever event causes the button to change colors, update the record in the database. then when the computers read the button color from the db.. all will update accordingly.

does this make sense?
time control + database = solution
