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.
