WinFBX Check3State

Postby deltarho[1859] » Feb 21, 2020 18:36

@Josep Roca

Hi José

When I use the following

pWindow.AddControl("Check3State", , IDC_CheckboxArch, "-arch ?", 66, nTop-25, 92, 20)

the BST_INDETERMINATE is not a greyed tick but a small black box.

It seems that programmatically all is well - it is just the display which is behaving oddly.

Thanks, José.

Check3State works OK with a PowerBASIC program. I then realized that the PB program was not themed, so I removed ' 1 24 "Theme.xml" ' from the rc file and the FreeBASIC program now works as it should.

So, there is something wrong with my Theme.xml which I have been using for ages without issue.

The xml was built from other people's submissions to get the best that I could - I am completely out of my depth here, so I may be gone sometime unless someone can spot what is wrong.

Theme.xml

Code: Select all

I have just used the xml that Paul Squires uses in WinFBE and that isn't working correctly either; at least I am in good company. Image

Yours truly wrote:Check3State works OK with a PowerBASIC program.

So, I themed that, and we have a problem there now.

Either there is something wrong with the xml file or Windows theming is up the spout.

I tried changing the compatibility mode going back to XP and I could not find an OS where it worked properly. It was nice to see an XP theme again, I miss that.

Looks like there is something wrong with the xml file.

The appearance of Windows controls is not the same if you use themes. Using themes, the inderteminate state does not appear as greyed, but as a small black box, it seems.

Yep - found this Control templates

We live and learn.

It seems that we can create a template to change how the controls look, but I am definitely not going there. Image
