Bugs With Themed Controls

I've been to the MS website but can't find a resolution to either of
the following. When using themed controls, command buttons have a one
pixel light colored dot just outside each corner. It is most noticable
if the form has a dark colored background. Has anyone else noticed

The other problem which I've seen mentioned on this group before is the
fact that triple state check boxes don't show the Null state when
themed controls are used. Is there a fix for this?
Any help appreciated.

Hi friends my question is is it possible to export the xp theme so that even when app is eventually deployed on win98 or 2000 the UI will be consistent to that of XP ? Thanks Tom

I would swear that when I developed in A97, I could change the back colour of a form. However, in Windows XP, on both A97 and A2003, there no longer is a property showing in the format tab for form properties for a back colour. I think the themed control idea is pretty good in that a developer can really go out on a limb if s/he chooses all kinds of fancy background colours for his/her app since colours selection is a very subjective...

It seems that the only way to make themed AND classic Windows GUIs look okay with tab controls and subforms, due to the color issue, is to place a one page-no button tab control on each subform that will be displayed as part of a main form's tab control, completely covering the subform's detail, and then pasting all the controls onto it. However, this is major cosmetic surgery. 1. Is there some secret way to re-attach event procedures...

I decided to use a tab control for my latest project. On Windows XP, the tab control itself is themed (tabs are themed), but the tab pages and any controls I put on them are not themed (except for textboxes). Done a bit of googling on this subject and I found a lot of people with the same problem, but no real solution. Has anyone come up with a good way to get controls to appear themed on a tab page?

Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but it gets around one of the more annoying limitations of using themed controls. Normally when using themed controls a triple state check box looks the same in the unchecked and null states - very annoying and not all that useful. Today I found by accident that if the border style of the checkbox is set to anything other than "solid", the check box takes on the appearance of a non-themed...

Hi, I get this exception when I use a themed css file. In my web.config file I have: <pages theme="dRise"> and the trouble page is a master page : <% Response.Write(Header)%> <form id="form1" runat="server"> <div class="FormContent">

A2003. I rather like the appearance I get with windows themed controls turned on, but I'm running into an odd problem with tab controls. When I set the back style to transparent, it really isn't transparent. I'm finding instead of one text box or a button that I'd like to have on the form "shining through" and displaying with all pages, it's as if the tab control keeps the odd colour background it generates. I originally developed the...

This is probably trivial, but annoying just the same. Has anyone noticed in Access 2003 when using themed controls that the mouseover color fringing does not seem to work properly on command buttons that have an image displayed instead of text? Or is this just happening on my machine?

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
