any1 here can help??

and sample of how to use them??

Is it possible to use an existing file, like for instance the XP standard theme or likewise? And if that is possible, where do one find those graphics?
/m.

Typically you make your application match XP's visual style simply by linking the XP common-controls manifest as a resource for your application. (You must do this if you want theming capabilities either way. Also, it is better to link as a resource than to just have a manifest file in the same directory.)

That's all you need to do to make your application pretty.


It is possible, however, to use a different visual style than the one the end-user selected. Now, the end-user may not like that too much, so be sure you have good reason to do this, and that you give the end-user a way to turn it off.

You might want to take a look through the MSDN Visual Styles Reference.

Here's a little site I googled that might help get you started. The examples are in VB.

Hope this helps.
