How to enable xp styles...
Razz This is the way you can enable xp styles support in your app...

Code:

directory       24,manifest
resource        manifest,\
                1,LANG_NEUTRAL,man
fileres         man,'man.txt'



This is man.txt:

Code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<assemblyIdentity
    name="x.x.x"
    processorArchitecture="x86"
    version="5.1.0.0"
    type="win32"/>
<description>no</description>
<dependency>
    <dependentAssembly>
        <assemblyIdentity
            type="win32"
            name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"
            version="6.0.0.0"
            processorArchitecture="x86"
            publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df"
            language="*"
        />
    </dependentAssembly>
</dependency>
</assembly>

MSDN wrote:
To create a manifest and enable your application to use visual styles:
1. Link to ComCtl32.lib and call InitCommonControls (see the Platform SDK documentation in the MSDN Library).
2. Add a file called YourApp.exe.manifest to your source tree that has the following XML format: [..]
3. Add the manifest to your application's resource file as follows: [..]

By the way, the macro 'fileres' is missing from FASM 1.64, as far as I can tell. You'll have to copy it from an earlier version. I got it from v 1.61, its right here:

Code:

macro fileres label,file_name
 { local data,size
  label dd RVA data,size,0,0
  data = $
  file file_name
  size = $ - data
  align 4 }



Just copy it into INCLUDE\MACROS\RESOURCE.INC, and it'll work.

It has been replaced with the more universal "resdata" macro, see the updated manual, here's the example taken directly from it:

Code:
resdata manifest
  file 'manifest.xml'
endres



Since the resource macros were not documented earlier, I decided to improve some of the solutions before I finally documented them.

Ok, thanks. I tend not to read manuals. hehe

Ok, so the updated code would be:

Code:

directory       24,manifest
resource        manifest,\
                1,LANG_NEUTRAL,man
resdata man
                file 'man.xml'
endres



I've tested this to work.

Don't worry, it's actually quite common. Wink

It reminds me this book: http://www.joelonsoftware.com/uibook/chapters/fog0000000062.html

In fact, users don't read anything.

Hey, I know that already! Wink I've read that before (it was linked to in some other topic).

Btw, a better way to code that now would probably be:

Code:

directory 24,manifest
resource manifest,\
         1,LANG_NEUTRAL,man
resdata man
         db '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>',13,10
         db '<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">',13,10
         db '<assemblyIdentity name="x.x.x" processorArchitecture="x86" version="5.1.0.0" type="win32"/> ',13,10
         db '<description>no</description>',13,10
         db '<dependency>',13,10
         db '<dependentAssembly>',13,10
         db '<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls" version="6.0.0.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df" language="*" />',13,10
         db '</dependentAssembly>',13,10
         db '</dependency>',13,10
         db '</assembly>',13,10
endres



that would reduce the file clutter. Plus, a PE file hacker (or someone using Resource Hacker) would get more annoyed due to the long lines.
