Emulating EnableVisualSty les()

How does one write an unmanaged function that perform this functionality?

In short I want to turn off/on visual style in my app...

Thanks,

Stephan

PS: two people have been looking for some time, and no solution aside putting the manifest
in a file, and renaming the file before startup was found... very ugly hack ...

Hi Stephan,

Thanks for your post!

You can find a bundle of unmanaged API functions in UxTheme.dll:
Visual Styles Reference
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/shellcc/pla
tform/commctls/userex/refentry.asp

Maybe the EnableTheming() and SetWindowTheme( ) functions are what you need.

Hope that helps!

The function you outlined are global settings.
So far, their is no real elegant solution to turn on off the style on the fly
but Alex Feinman showed me this solution (See his post below) to allow this to be done at startup time.

In short it manually load the manifest using the "Activation Context Reference" API.

Stephan

To do this you use CreateActCtx function to create activation context prior to any window-creating activity. The activation context
will still require a manifest file, but whether to use it will be decided programmaticall y.

I've put together an MFC sample for you: http://www.alexfeinman.com/download....=ThemedApp.zip

If you look inside InitInstance, you will find a call to ActivateContext function, which performs the actual work.

Naturally, due to the way theming is implemented, you will not be able to switch theming support on the fly; at least not without
recreating your windows.
If you activate context prior to displaying a dialog, the dialog will be created with theme support

Hi Stephan,

Thanks for sharing Alex's sample with us.

However it has no way to turn on/off the visual style on the runtime,
unless to redraw each control in the app manually to mimic the theme, but
that seems too complicated.

Gary,

The problem with enabling styles at the runtime is that application with
visual styles enabled has its common controls serviced by a side-by-side
component. This can only be changed before child controls are created. For
the regular windows Theme service installs a hook that forces non-client
part of the window to repaint differently as well as affects the controls
painting. To the best of my knowledge this hook cannot be turned off on a
per-window basis.

I would like to document a problem with the current solution.
By using a string name for the manifest we couldn't get our icon in list control to show up
when the skinning was enabled.

What ever we did, the list box would always be blank in skinning mode.

Then we simply renamed the manifest from "AppName" to "2" and things started to work and

This might is really bizarre in my view... and who ever can see the windows source code
should check this behavior, because it make no sense to me and might hide other issues.

To recap:

We are successfully loading a manifest manually to control skinning at startup time, by
using a numeric name for the manifest file that we placed in the resource.

I added Application.EnableVisualStyles() as the first statement in Main() of my program, and didn't notice much change in visual appearance, but what I *did* notice is that some of my buttons stopped working! They were enabled but no longer called their OnClick methods. I tried adding Application.DoEvents() right after EnableVisualStyles and that didn't help. What gives?

Hello, I'm using Visual Studio 2003 and it would be nice if my buttons and other controls could look like Windows XP buttons rather than the flat square kind.

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,...

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...

Hello I'm a network technician in training and I need your help. I am currently learning how to create and manage the different types of VPNs and I have a question about LAN-to-LAN VPNs. The last exercise I practiced was to create a LAN-to-LAN VPN between two Pfsense firewalls, by using IPSEC protocols. I succeeded, with both firewalls in the same network. But I'm wondering if it's possible to do the same thing, with 2 Pfsense firewalls...
