System.Windows. Forms.Applicati on.EnableVisual Styles

Hi there,

Im using System.Windows. Forms.Applicati on.EnableVisual Styles to attempt
to apply visual styles to message boxes in a VB.NET 2005 application.

Unfortunately this has no effect, the application has the "Applicatio n
Framework" enabled with "Enable XP Visual Styles" set to true. Any ideas on
what I'm missing?

Thanks loads in advance!

Hi again,

It's okay I found the problem, I was supplying all optional parameters
to the MessageBox.Show method, one of the passed parameters for "options"
was causing this to occur.

I'm having a very bizarre problem. I have a vb.net application which uses the ESRI MapObjects 2.2 component (unmanaged code). When I use the MapObjects built-in function 'CopyMap' to copy the map to the clipboard my app will crash sometimes. Even stranger, sometimes if I copy the map to the clipboard (and my app doesnt crash immediately), if I then launch Word my app will spontaneously crash! The CopyMap function takes a parameter...

I've converted a VB6 project to VB.Net 2005. (Actually using vstudio pro 2005). I'm on a machine that also has VB6 and Vstudio.net 2003 on it.

Hi, I am wondering why the .NET Framework is quite different from Win32 API when it comes to displaying system modal message boxes. Consider the four following types of system modal message boxes (please see associated source code below): 1) Win32 API with context ("btnWin32WithContext_Click") 2) .NET Framework with context ("btnFrameworkWithContext_Click") 3) Win32 API withOUT context ("btnWin32WithOUTContext_Click")

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.
