I am new to windows programming and I need help in how to use viual style in my
application for windows XP. I do not understand :-

1. In SetWindowsTheme function, can I change the windows theme ? If yes, How do I change the theme ?
2. MSDN says that SetWindowsTheme function sends a WM_THEMECHANGED message, at the end of which, it seaches for a new visual style, but where do I specify which visual style I want ? I do i tell my application to use a visual style ?

3. In all the GetThemeXXX function, which property I get ? Are these the external properties for the theme installed on my OS ?

Please help me as I am thoroughly confused :whistling:
