Hi,

Is it possible to set Windows XP visual style in
Powerbuilder even if the windows setting is Windows Classic
style?

In the Display Properties of Windows XP, Appearance tab, you
can set styles (Windows Classic and Windows XP) as I am
using XP.

what I want is that when deploying my application, then even
if the client computer uses Windows Classic style, I want my
PB application to look like Windows XP style.

Is that possible? if so, how? thank you in advance.

Neil

I don't think it is possible.

OK thanks for the reply. Anyways, as I am deploying my
application, I changed the Visual style to Windows XP, but
still my application does not look like Windows XP visual
style.

What files should I include in the deployment so that it
will adapt to visual styles?

if I run the application under PB IDE, it will but out of
the IDE it will not.

THanks again.

Neil

PB8 and some versions of PB9 (I think) require a manifest file located in
the same directory as the exe.

Nope/Yes-but. If the machine is set up for Windows Classic, the Themes
service is stopped. This is the service that does the whole XP thing
(Not sure about Vista though). I suppose you could start the Themes
service, but that would affect ALL applications on the machine, and
probably piss of the end users.
