Asked On October 1, 2003 09:31 AM

On 9/98/03 there was a response to message here in the tools forum "The Office2003 features should be usable by simply turning on some new properties in our menus framework, tab control and groupbar control." I have the 2.0.0.2 release, are these properties included in this release? If they are could you provide a list of the properties. It isn't obvious to me what they are. Thanks

Hi Joseph, To enable the Office 2003 look all you would need to do is set the Style to Office2003. Arun

Arun: Sorry to be so dense but "set the style" on what object using what mechanism SetStyle() or assignment? Joe Nash > Hi Joseph, > > To enable the Office 2003 look all you would need to do is set the Style to Office2003. > > Arun >

Hi Joe, Sorry for not being more descriptive. You can set the style of a particular control by setting the Style property using the Designer. For example if you want to set the style for the menus, you would right-click the BarManager and choose Properties and then in the Properties set the Style to be either Office XP or Office 2003 and so on for the various controls. Tabs, Menus, Groupbar/GroupView and CommandBars support the Office 2003 look and feel. We will have more documentation on these features in the beta version of Essential Suite 2.0. Regards, Arun

It would be nice if you had a central "style manager" (perhaps you already do?) that would allow me to change the style property in one place and have it affect all menus, toolbars, tab controls, etc. Sean

Hi Sean Well, this issue has come up before and was discussed and yes it would be something really handy. We do plan to investigate it post 2.0. Thanks for the feedback. Regards, Arun

This sounds like it could be very close to Skinning support. It'd be nice to have a reputable company like Syncfusion release a Skinning product rather then relying on someone's "hobby" project... > Hi Sean > > Well, this issue has come up before and was discussed and yes it would be something really handy.

Hi, Anthony, Thanks for the feedback. Currently there are no plans for such a feature, but we will keep this mind. Regards, Arun > This sounds like it could be very close to Skinning support.

Hi Sebastien, There are no plans for the 2.0 version as Office 2003 does not have the traditional VS.NET type docking windows in it. Thanks Arun > Hi, > > Will docked windows also support Office 2003 style? > > Sebastien >

Arun, See the Task Pane in Office... looks like a docked window, isn't it? Should be nice to have it. Thanks, Sebastien

Hi Sebastien, Yes, we are looking into implementing this feature post 2.0 as part of our CommandBars and XPMenus package. Regards, Arun

Arun, I can't find how to enable Office 2003 l&f for Tabs & GroupView; it works for the others. I have 2.0.0.5. Could you help me? Sebastien > Hi Joe, > > Sorry for not being more descriptive.

Hi Sebastien, For Tabs, you need to set the TabStyle property to OneNoteStyle. The Office 2003 look and feel for GroupView is not part of the 2.0.0.5 build, but it will be part of the Essential Suite 2.0 beta scheduled for the last week of October. Thanks Arun

Hi Arun, Does it works for TabbedMdiManager too? How can I do it? Thanks, Sebastien

Hi Sebastien To set this property in case of a TabbedMDI, kindly refer to this Knowledgebase article: How to access the tab control and the tabs in the Tabbed MDI layout? This demonstrates how you can access the tab and now you need to set it's style to OneNoteStyle. Regards, Arun
