Visual Style in Outlook
How to have XP visual style enabled in a Outlook Add-in? 
Thomas Grossen


Hi again,

I know this is a common question, and I have found some answers for the .Net version, but I did not find it for the VCL:

Do you know any (good) components to uses with Delphi (with source code?) to have the visual styles in an Outlook Add-in? I have found some one, but they are written in c# and need the .Net Framework.

I don't like the Outlook manifest file solution, it may create conflicts with others add-in.

Any suggestion may help. Maybe somebody else on this forum have some experience with this?

Thank you

Some time ago we used ElPack components and I personally was impressed by the posibilities of this set of components. Have a look, may be it will suit you.
