    We’re doing some quick testing running our applications on Vista…

    The SmartUI controls seem to be having difficulties displaying; has anyone else seen this?

    The controls work just fine (they’re there and respond to input), but either do not display/paint properly, or simply do not display.

    Thanks for any input!

    One thing I found with help from the Xceed team is you can programatically force the SmartUI to use the Classic skins in the UI. It’s kind of ugly and doesn’t really fit with the Vista skins, but at least it works.

    Another thing is to change the font colors. For some reason if you use the default “ControlText”, it won’t display.

    I just forced the UI to use a set color, and it came through on Vista. Here is the code I used where “outMain” is the SmartExplorerTaskPane.

    ‘Set the ClassicView of the UI for Vista Compatibility
    Me.outMain.UIStyleResourceAssembly = Nothing
    Me.outMain.UIStyle = Xceed.SmartUI.UIStyle.UIStyle.WindowsClassic

    ‘Declare Count Variables
    Dim iGroupCount As Integer
    Dim iTaskCount As Integer

    ‘Set The Font Color For the SmartUI
    Try
    ‘Set The Group Text Color
    For iGroupCount = 0 To outMain.Items.Count – 1
    outMain.Items.Item(iGroupCount).ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue

    ‘Set The Task Color
    For iTaskCount = 0 To outMain.Items.Item(iGroupCount).Items.Count – 1
    outMain.Items.Item(iGroupCount).Items.Item(iTaskCount).ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Blue
    Next

    Next

    Catch ex As Exception
    ‘Do nothing, I don’t want to throw an error
    End Try
