Vista Themed Controls

P: n/a
hi, how can i get all the controls to have the vista theme (ex the
progressbar, treeview, etc) instead of the XP theme (on vista machines
ofcourse)? thanks

You shouldn't be getting the XP theme in your application forms on Vista. By
default, the form will be automatically rendered using Windows Aero. Are
you compiling using Visual Studio 2005? Also, is Vista set to run Aero or
the Windows Classic theme.

yes, i am using VS 2005 with Visual Styles enabled, and Aero interface is on,
yet its still XP style. Like for the treeview, it still has the plus/minus
not the vista form. is there any way to change it?

Sounds like an installation problem. I would reinstall VS2005 with
the latest service packs.

I have seen this sentence more, be aware that just relying on Google is
creating a high security risc. There can be created code that opens your
computer as well as there can be normal mall functioning code.

I only use Google in this case to search in the Microsoft Newsgroups
information, for dotNet I know that it mostly well filtered by all kind of
regulars including MVP's.
