XP Visual style and BarStyle Segments

Post by Mex » 24 Sep 2009, 19:54

Hi Timo

Im testing your progressbar control with VB6, im using manifest file and InitCommonControlsEx.
When i use BarStyle - segments, it does not work under Vista and Windows 7 - smooth style is used instead of Segments.


Best regards;

That's because the default theme (Aero) of Windows Vista and Windows 7 doesn't distinguish between segments and smooth style.
