    [XP] some controls are hidden in "Windows Classic Style"

    I have a program which uses some dialog boxes. If I use "Windows Classic Style" (Control Panel => Display => Appearance => ' Windows Classic Style' (from the 'Windows and buttons:' drop down list)) and run the programming, some of the controls are not displayed on the dialog box. If I run the same program by selecting "Windows XP Style" then everything is displayed properly. How to run the program and get all the contrls displayed in "Windows Classic Style"? Is there any setting to be done?

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that's possible...

    Did you try other machines?
    * PC: Intel Core 2 DUO E6550 @ 2.33 GHz with 2 GB RAM: Archlinux-i686 with xfce4.
    * Laptop: Intel Core 2 DUO T6600 @ 2.20 GHz with 4 GB RAM: Archlinux-x86-64 with xfce4.

    Sounds like a program bug to me, tell the author about it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
