Borland C++ Builder VCL Components >> looking for vcl to make control looks like XP

by Azrin Aris » Fri, 29 Aug 2003 09:39:02 GMT

Application using BCB still looks like old windows control under XP.
I've tried to use the menifest file and some control looks like XP
control but some other don't. For example, TBitBtn still look like old
TBitBtn but TButton now look like XP Button. Same goes to TDBCombox and
TDBLookupComboBox. Anyone found any solution yet?

Regards,
Azrin

The VCL for the current version of BCB does not officially support XP at
all, as it was released before XP was.


TBitBtn is an owner-drawn button. TButton is a thin wrapper around a native
button without customization. Borland's native VCL components that are
owner-drawn do not work correctly under XP as they are not coded to utilize
XP's new drawing functions and rules.


TThemeManager addresses the issue:

6. Making DataRelations Look Nice

I have two DataTables in a DataSet. I create a DataRelation between two
like-typed columns in the first and second tables, and it works exactly as
expected.

Unfortunately, the default behavior seems to be that the link (or links if
there's multiple DataRelations) are all under the left-most column. Is there
any way to put the link under the column being linked?

Thanks...
