Is there a way to have Office XP - like menus in my proggies without having to start from a scratch? Does Microsoft provide some kind of interface to make such menus? Yes, I know that somebody made an asm library for that, but is there really no other way?

This only works for WinXP of course. For the older Windows versions you need to do it from scratch.

I've seen this already and I'm using a .manifest file and it gives me those cool XP-like common controls (buttons, editboxes etc.) but I still get an ordinary menu and not an OfficeXP-like...

Ermm... did you actually look at the link in my second reply?

Yep. So, what you're trying to say is that Microsoft doesn't provide an easy way to use that kind of menus and I have to use some 3rd party library to have them?

Yes. But normally the menus should change on XP, too, when using a manifest file.
