Triple state checkboxes CAN be used with themed controls

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 control and behaves as a non-themed control
showing three different states as it should.

Wayne, thank you for posting this.

You are correct, and I have amended my web page on converting to A2003, to
help people discover this information too.

Thanks.

Hi folks. I have a form, frmHistory, which has 3 toggle buttons (1 of which is tglName, which I will be using to demonstrate my problem). The buttons are used to sort the form (explanations below). I have set the button's "Triple State" value to Yes, and the default value to False. Here is the macro that I used for tglName (I assigned the macro to the button's On Click event): ...

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?

During a postback event, I am having trouble retrieving the state of a CheckBox Control that I am dynamically adding to a DataGrid Control using ASP.NET 1.1. I have no trouble adding the TemplateColumn dynamically. I persist a DataSet in my Session object and I bind the CheckBox to the DataSet. So far so good. The CheckBoxes show up and the user interacts with them (checks a few, unchecks a few). The problem is that during a postback...

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...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
