    XP like controls

    What do I need to do in order to make my application look more XP like? Do I need to load some extra libraries to do it?


    Thanks.

    I clicked on the links, but they keep getting me on the same page with some useless links like 'Welcome to the MSDN Library' 'Web Development' '.Net Development' 'Win32 and COM development', and that's not the first time I see it what's the problem?
    what does signature stand for?

    Search MSDN using "Using Windows XP Visual Styles Explorer".

    Use the table of contents to learn your way around.
