Controls in a DLL with 3D appearance

I've got a splitter window in a DLL. One of its panes is a CFormView, where I have to dynamically create edit and combo boxes in runtime. The controls appear but they do not present the 3DCTL appearance. I set the 3DCTL property of the form view with no results. Then i tried with the Enable3dControls() function, getting an assertion "This function cannot be called from a DLL".

How can i get 3d controls????

You can probably try in the dialog template itself to set the parameter. You can do it in the oncreate method.

Did you call Enable3dControls() from EXE that loads your DLL

Yes, I did it. I think the problem is that the controls are created in runtime...

Try calling the below line in your code just before creating the controls from a DLL.

AFX_MANAGE_STATE(AfxGetModuleState());

Remember this line and the creation of control code sholud be in the same function.
