    Question c Win32 Programming Controls

    Ok, If you compare the controls from a win32 c program written in lets say dev-Cpp by Bloodshed, to the ones from Visual C++ or Visual Basic. It's quite obvious that the ones from VC++ and VB are much more visually appealing. Is there a way to make the controls look the same without using ms products such as those? What I mean is the controls in vc++ are sort of 3d, they set back into the window.

    Look into CreateWindowEx() and the WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE extended window style.
