    Posted: 13 August 2007 at 9:29pm
I am trying to get a TabControl to work with the SkinFramework on a Vista machine.  Because I like the Aero titlebar and borders of Vista this is what I've tried:
 
TabControl.Appearance = xtpTabAppearancePropertyPage
TabControl.Color = xtpTabColorWinXP
SkinFramework.LoadSkin App.Path & "\Vista.cjstyles", ""
SkinFramework.ApplyOptions = xtpSkinApplyColors Or xtpSkinApplyMetrics 
SkinFramework.ApplyWindow hWnd
 
This does not seem to work, the TabControl remains the default Color style. 
 
 
If I include xtpSkinApplyFrame during ApplyOptions all works fine but I lose the Aero titlebar and borders.
 
 
Is this a bug or am I doing wrong?
We are using v10.4.2.

Hello,
 
I think you can disable SkinFramework vista theme if user run application in Vista.

But I want the Vista theme to work on Vista.  We are using VB6 which does not deliver themed applications correctly unless:
1)  A .manifest file is included OR
2)  Use some kind of skinning tool like CodeJock
 
There are some caveats with item 1, so we had decided on item 2.
If I turn off the SkinFramework on a Vista machine then other controls on the form are not themed but the TabControl is.  If I turn on the SkinFramework, the other controls are themed but the TabControl is not.
 
Not sure what's up here.

Hi,
Its designed behavior. Without xtpSkinApplyFrame  TabControl will not be skinned.
I think you need enable manifest.
