deploying xp themed app on 98 & 2000

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 ?

No, it isn't. Theming is an OS level service which is not provided on
windows 98 or 2000. You could draw all of the controls yourself to look
themed, but it would be a tremendous amount of work for such a little

Hope this helps.

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...

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 this? 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...

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...

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,...

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.
