I'm currently getting to know OWL programming. As I just started doing so,  I have a little question concerning the real Windows '95 look in the Resource Workshop opposite to the look you get when you run the application. I'm using a TDialog for my About window. I'm just getting that white area over and over again. Also, my beautiful static box around my text will be transformed to 'just a frame' when running the application. I've seen this with a lot of win32 targetted applications, but not with the IDE itself. Is there any known method to change this ? (I've used TApplication::EnableCtl3d() already...)

First of it, you shoul have this line in your code

void MyApp::InitMainWindow ()
{
    .
    .
    .
    // Windows 3-D controls.
    EnableCtl3d(true);
}

then when you edit you're about box in the resource Workshop
DoubleClick on the caption bar of the about box, select in the combobox Class, this item "BorDlg_Gray", then you should not see anymore these white area.

Thanks for answering ! This works already!
But, is there any way to get the REAL Windows '95 look without using BorDlg_Gray as class ?
Or does one have to have the new BC++ 5 then ?

Also, the black frame (instead of the sunken one due to white and black lines on a gray background) still remains, is there any way to correct this ?

Further, I thought that there was a way to specify the background color of a window, is there ?
