    Updated look in WinXP

    I am currently running WinXP RC1 and have been able to get my VB apps to
    have the new look UI of WinXP using a ".manifest" file.

    However, this doesn't seem to work for the Tab control. Does anyone have a
    solution to this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Boris.

    Which Tab control do you mean? The TabStrip from the VB5 Common
    Controls library works fine here. None of the VB6 Common Controls can
    take advantage of the new Comctl32.dll v6.0, so that TabStrip control
    doesn't work. Neither does the Tabbed Dialog (SSTab) control, since it
    isn't based on Common Controls.

    Mattias,

    Thanks for your help. This is *exactly* what I needed. I never even thought
    to try the VB5 controls...

    Boris.
