Hi guys, another WinXP question.

I'm writing an app and I've noticed that the menu is grey, but I'd really like it to use XP styles such as the one in IE.

The problem as it stands is that it makes the rebar look out of place as you can see from the screen shot (my app is the bottom one).

Has anyone had any experience of this before.

I forgot to mention, I've include the manifest as a resource and all other controls use the XP style perfectly, its just the menu thats different.

Hey, the xpmenu prog is great!

Well, if you want, (I don't know if t will help you too), but I've got 2 useful soft: Webexpert and FTPexpert (made by www.visicommedia.com). (there are other names for English version)

But now, the menu are in XP style: (see joined image)
I don't say you should debug and disassemble it, but you could have a look at these menus. (free sharewares versions are available).

(Hope this will help you)

If I remember well, someone posted a library to have xp-likes menus on the board... it wasn't really finished, but it is worth a look.
