I have MSVC++ 6.0 which i've had for quite a while. I have never downloaded any new versions of the win32api.
What I want to do is be able to make a dialog that has an xp look to it. At the moment, if I create a dialog and just use the DialogBox() function, my buttons are booring (old style).
What do i have to do to get my dialog box to look 'xp-ish'? Do I need a new win32api.. and if so, is there anything else I need to do?
Thanks for pointing me to that again. I had previously found that article, but it seemed to be talking about manually painting stuff, so i gave up on it. It seems the key to getting your style to work it a .manifest file you have to put in your resource. and for anyone else out there - you have to upgrade your sdk!
