C# look n feel MFC look n feel

Hi Experts,

I'm wondering if there's a setting somewhere that can make an MFC app look like one generated from a Winforms C# app - or vice versa.  Or is there some other easy way to get this?

Thank you,

    It's often the controls that make the visual destinction between the two. You can code a MDI app in both and you can even make them look the same.
    But a MFC version is bound to the controls that are available in that version. C# winform apps can also have a different look'n feel if they are build agains a different version of the framework 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5. Every new version added some new controls or subtile changes in the look and feel of some controls.

    So you could mimick the C# for quite some part, but this has to be done in code, and you could even have to replace some standard controls with derived and altered versions so they act like C# versions.

    So... all can be done in code, but it's not just some switch you can set somewhere and all looks like new magically,
