    Button Styles (Specifically Pushbutton)

    Ok, in reference to this link:

    How can i make my buttons have different styles like that?
    Can someone show me a specific reference on the msdn website or give me code example of making boxes have multiple styles? It talks about painting the box, though the link isnt just push buttons its general buttons..

    So can someone help me out? And tell me if whatever methods you show me (ect..) work the same for radio's, combo's, ect.. because eventually i'll be needing all of those.

    What do you mean by "different styles"? You can do owner drawn and make the button a bitmap if that is what you mean. msdn has a pretty good tutorial for owner drawn on that page. Maybe you are looking for manifest, that is a different style, you may want to look into that.

    Well the image on that page shows multiple buttons. (OK Cancel and Apply)

    Each of the 4 Rows have different looks, are the more fancy ones (row 2 and 4 are my fav) owner drawn?

    Look at 'Flat' and '3DState' in button styles....
