Apply the VCL Style on an ActiveX in DELPHI XE2

Almost all our GUI is embedded on OCXs, thus is very important for us to have that feature and allow to apply the VCL-Styles to the DLLs (OCXs in our case).

However our IDE doesn't have that feature that other people has on Delphi XE2 > Project > Resources and images... (Find attach two pictures the one without the VCLSTyle is our IDE)

Have someone try to embed the a VCLStyle in a DLL or an OCX on Delphi XE2?

Thanks.

Yes, we already worked around that link, before post this question. And today, we know that the VCLStyle resource type can be added if you write on resource type combo box manually VCLSTYLE. Thus our OCX can be build with the VCLStyle embedded.

However our OCX still running without applying the VCLStyle.

Do we need something more on the OCX apart of the fact of add the *.vsf as a VCLSTYLE resource?

Finally, the OCX is running with the VCLStyle to do that we have needed to embed the VCL Style as a resource and setup that Style on the OCX.
