I saw the Controls sample and GUI_VisualStudio sample. Looks like I have to handle the WM_CTLCOLOR message to implement dark mode in dialogs. This would work for many controls. But won't work for buttons (Button, Checkbox, Radio buttons). We will have to use CXTPButton::SetTheme for such cases.

Posted this so that it can helps someone.

Hello,

I am using the following for dark theme and also made docking page, splitter etc use dark theme.

CXTPPaintManager::SetTheme(xtpThemeVisualStudio2012Dark);

This is working well.

Now, I don't know how to automatically make the dialog boxes also use the dark theme. Is there a way I can set a theme etc to tell all dialog boxes to use dark background and light text color. Basically dark theme.

Thanks.
