Force a Windows XP look

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have an application, designed in Visual Studio 2005, which will run
mainly on Windows XP computers.

If I run the application on a Windows XP computer having the Windows XP
Theme selected the controls look nice rounded, etc. just like in Windows
XP.

But if I run the application on a Windows XP computer having the Windows
Classic Theme selected the controls look 'classic' again.

Is there a way to also use the Windows XP look on a computer having the
Windows Classic Theme running?

Thanks,

Regards,
Maurice

Hi Maurice,

I'm not sure about 2005, but in 2003, if you want the XP look "no matter
what", then you need to use custom controls (created by yourself or purchased
from a third party) that have the XP look.
