XP-style Numeric up/down (spinbox) - how?

We want to get the "correct XP-look and feel" in an application we are developing using Visual Studio .NET. However - some controls in the framework do not appear with the correct XP-style, as described in the document: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dv_vstechart/html/vstchSmartClientApplications.asp Among those "broken" controls is one that we really need: the spin box (numeric and domain up/down). Since there _are_ such controls in applications shipped with XP, my question is: how to use such control in our development environment? (We'd like to avoid buying 3rd party controls mimicking the "real" stuff, if that's possible). Regards, Mikael

We are planning to provide a derived Control that would do custom drawing to incorporate XP Themes into its drawing. This sample however will require Essential Tools installed. We will post this sample in our Essential Tools KB in a few days. Praveen
