In VB 2003, call System.Windows.Forms.Application.EnableVisualStyle s

In VB 2002, add a manifest file (AFAIR). Search this group for "visual
styles" (that's what you mean?).

Wait for VS 2005. Visual Styles will be supported within the IDE with
this IDE.

Currently you can use a manifest file with "devenv.exe" to enable visual
styles within the ide's form editor, but that's not recommended because
it will break imagelists.

My FAQ:

NET 1.0:

Set the controls' 'FlatStyle' properties to 'System', then add an
application manifest.
