There seems to be some inconsistencies in appearance between datawindow
group boxes and group box controls on a window in PowerBuilder 10.5 (build
4523). We just converted our app from PB8.

- If I set my PC and app for XP (new) style controls, datawindow group boxes
with font text color set to WindowText display in a color other than
WindowText (blue, rather than black, based on my current settings). Group
box controls on a window correctly display with WindowText font color.

- If I set my PC and app for XP classic style controls, WindowText font
color now displays appropriately for datawindow group boxes. But,
datawindow group boxes now have square corners and group box window controls
have rounded corners.

- If I set my PC to XP (new) style controls and my app for XP classic style
controls, the behavior is the same as the last example: rounded vs. square
corners.

Does anybody have any insight into this problem? The display
inconsistencies just don't look good. We have hundreds of datawindows and
windows in the app, so some kind of manual change would be painful. (Maybe
could do something at the framework level, if we could find a good
solution).

Advice?
Thanks,
Jeff

Just FYI, this has acknowledged as a bug by Sybase, and sent to development.
