using VS2005 C#, ADX 2007.3.4.

Scenario: Outlook add-in with custom task panes (webpage) hosting a grid which is created and databound in another dll. When the user double clicks on the grid, an event in the grid dll opens a form for editing the selected grid row.

Problem: all works except the controls are not XP styled. Note: when I experimented using the following code, controls are styled correctly but the icons associated with a TabControl are not showing.

using (AddinExpress.MSO.XPThemes.Enable)
AWApp.Form1 f = new AWApp.Form1();

Hi Bruce.

I used to experience this issue with standard .NET controls.
I haven't found any solution so far. Please try to use third party controls.
